Tennesse Bourbon Company announced plans to acquire the baby bourbon company Honey Bun, which has been owned by Jack Daniels since 1997.
It is not immediately clear what the deal would mean for the company.
Honey Bun distillery was founded in the 1950s in Nashville, Tennessee, by former president and CEO Jack Daniels.
Its signature drink, Honey Bun Baby, has been the subject of some controversy because it is a whiskey that is made with corn.
The baby is made from corn and is bottled at 55 proof.
Jack Daniels said in a statement that it was excited to partner with Tennese, which is based in Kentucky.
The company said the deal will create an iconic brand that has a proven history of producing high quality bourbon.
“The Tenneses experience of excellence is unmatched, and they are truly an industry leader in this segment,” the statement read.
Jack and Betty Daniels have been producing bourbon since the late 1950s, according to the company’s website.
It’s been known for its distinctive bourbon, but its popularity grew during Prohibition when Jack Daniels began bottling the whiskey with a higher percentage of whiskey and the company moved from a single barrel to a barrel mashbill.
Jacksons Kentucky Bourbon is currently made from bourbon barrels from around the world, according the company, and it is one of the largest brands of bourbon in the world.
The sale of Honey Bun could help the company continue to expand in the Midwest.
Tennesis bourbon has been available at liquor stores since the 1980s, and the brand has been a staple in the American market.
The purchase of Honey Buns would give the company more stability and consistency in its offerings.
“Our plan for Honey Bun is to maintain the quality and innovation in our bourbon that we have always strived for, but also to enhance the brand with a more global reach,” the company said in the statement.
