CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The New Hampshire Liquor Commission has bought a record 15 barrels - the equivalent of 3,750 bottles - of Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel whiskey to be sold at state liquor stores.

Liquor Commission Chairman Joseph Mollica said the state’s record sales have given it “unique opportunities to acquire and deliver exclusive products.”

The single barrel whiskey, with its distinctive flavor, sells for $44.99 a bottle and is inscribed with “Granite State Collection Record Setting 15 Bottles in 2015.”

The state bought one barrel in 2001. It purchased more through the years as demand increased. A commission spokesman said New Hampshire sells more Jack Daniel’s products than Maine, Vermont and Rhode Island combined.

An assistant master distiller is visiting Hooksett and Concord on June 19 and Meredith, Gilford and Laconia on June 20.
