Have you ever picked up a bottle of whiskey, turned it over in your hands, and wondered about the peculiar blue spot on the label? Well, so have I. So I did some research and come up with some answers. Here’s what we know: Blue Spot Whiskey is bottled in Kentucky by Brown-Forman (the same company that also makes Jim Beam), but it’s not necessarily distilled there either. The label says “distilled and bottled by Jack Daniel Distillery,” but no one at Jack Daniel’s has any idea what Blue Spot is or how it came to be. In short: this whiskey is a bit of an enigma!

Blue Spot Whiskey is a mystery.

Blue Spot Whiskey is a mystery.
  • It’s not from Kentucky, but it’s from the US.
  • The company that makes it (Brown-Forman) also makes Jack Daniel’s, but they don’t know anything about Blue Spot.

It’s not bottled in Kentucky.

  • The whiskey is bottled in Tennessee, not Kentucky.
  • It’s bottled by Jack Daniel Distillery, which is located in Lynchburg, Tennessee.

But it is bottled in the US.

  • It’s a Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.
  • The bottle was manufactured in Lawrenceburg, Indiana.

It’s made by the same company that makes Jack Daniel’s, but Jack Daniel’s doesn’t know anything about it.

You might not be able to tell from the bottle, but Blue Spot is made by Brown-Forman. That’s the same company that makes Jack Daniel’s and Southern Comfort–but don’t expect them to acknowledge this fact. When you visit their website and search for “Blue Spot,” you won’t find any mention of the whiskey at all (other than a couple mentions on their blog). Instead, you’ll see references to other products like Early Times Kentucky Whisky or Old Forester Bourbon. And if you go through their FAQ section? Nothing there either!

The label says “distilled and bottled by Jack Daniel Distillery.”

The label says “distilled and bottled by Jack Daniel Distillery.” The whiskey is made by the same company that makes Jack Daniel’s, but Jack Daniel’s doesn’t know anything about it. It’s not bottled in Kentucky, either–it comes from New Jersey.

This whiskey is a bit of an enigma

Blue Spot is a bit of an enigma. It’s not bottled in Kentucky, but it does come from the United States and Blue Spot Whiskey in the UK. And while Jack Daniel’s has nothing to do with it (they’re located in Tennessee), they are owned by the same company. So what gives? Well, we don’t know for sure yet–but there are some clues! The bottle itself says that Blue Spot whiskey was created by “the finest distillers” and aged for five years before being bottled at 80 proof (40% alcohol content). That sounds pretty legit to us! We can also see from their website that they use an “Old World method” when making their whiskey…which makes sense because these guys have been around since 1866 so they’ve probably figured out what works over time and what doesn’t work so well anymore.*

Conclusion

We don’t know much about this whiskey, but it’s definitely something worth investigating. If you see Blue Spot Whiskey on the shelf at your local liquor store, we recommend picking up a bottle and giving it a try!
