POPULAR TENNESSEE WHISKEY DISTILLERIES
The world’s top-selling whiskey is made at Jack Daniel Distillery in Lynchburg, Tennessee. Located 90 minutes outside of Nashville, this historic distillery originated the Lincoln County Process, which filters whiskey through charcoal, and has been distilling Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey since the 1880s.
Learn how George Dickel Distillery makes whisky its owner believed to be as good as some of the world’s best scotches. This old-school Cascade Hollow distillery was built in 1870 and uses ‘chill-mellowing’ and single-story warehouses to consistently craft its signature George Dickel American whisky brand.
Childhood friends and former brewers began distilling their innovative Corsair products just over 10 years ago. Now nationally renowned, their Nashville-made whiskey, bourbon and other artisan spirits play with hundreds of mash bills, unusual grains and an array of experimental techniques.
Thompson’s Station’s H Clark Distillery is new to the spirits scene, but its four-grain bourbon, gin and experimental micro batch distillates are already making a name for themselves. By utilizing locally grown grains and distilling only 100 gallons at a time, you’ll see how alcohol is made on a small scale.
From its charming 200-year-old log cabin tasting room to stories of corn grown on the family farm, Leiper’s Fork Distillery in Franklin has become a popular tour stop. Taste their small batch whiskey filtered through four feet of local sugar maple wood charcoal and other premium southern spirits.
