MICRO-DISTILLERY & TASTING ROOM

This is where the magic happens—where humble ingredients like corn, barley and rye are cooked, fermented, distilled and aged until finally they are ready to be bottled as whiskey and enjoyed. Located in the heart of downtown Chattanooga, across from the historic Chattanooga Choo Choo, the Tennessee Stillhouse micro-distillery and tasting room is steeped in the history and lore of Tennessee’s rich whiskey tradition. Stop by for a tour, saddle up to the bar, and get a taste of history in the making.

THE EXPERIENCE

Opened in Spring of 2015, the Tennessee Stillhouse is making the first legal whiskey distilled in Chattanooga in over 100 years. It’s part experiement and innovation lab, part museum and all good. It’s a place to showcase the whiskey we’re making and the whiskey tradition we come from while also allowing us to get creative with techniques and showcase our current product. Each tour includes a taste of Chattanooga Whiskey.

THE SPACE

You’ll notice old barrel staves—yes, from our very own whiskey barrels—woven throughout the space alongside reclaimed wood from a local factory. Market Street was once home to a whole slew of distilleries in the pre-prohibition days when Chattanooga’s whiskey game was at its peak. We’re grateful that after several possible locations this is the first home of Chattanooga Whiskey Co. We’ve been fortunate to work with a great set of local talent including our architect, Thomas Palmer, and our carpenter, Matt Sears, of Haskel Sears Design.

THE STILL

Our custom-made still, affectionately called “Doc,” made by our friends over at Vendome Copper and Brass Works, is the star of the show. Tours include a lesson in how whiskey is made from “grain to glass” and a chance to peak into the process. You may even get a chance to meet our Head Distiller, Grant McCracken, and see what he’s mixing up on any given day. Have a dram, learn a little something, and get a better understanding of what makes Chattanooga Whiskey such a special part of this great Tennessee tradition.

OUR WHISKEY

1816 RESERVE

Smooth with a hint of spice, you’ll love the clean finish of our 1816 Reserve. The Reserve is a 90-proof American Whiskey, aged 6 ½ years in charred American white oak barrels with a mash bill consisting of 75% corn, 21% rye, and 4% malted barley. Drink it as you like it – neat, chilled with whiskey stones, or mixed in your favorite cocktail.

PROOF 90
COLOR Golden to light amber
AROMA Spice, herbal with distinct rye character and nuances of strong aged wood.
TASTE Distinct rye spiciness with vanilla undertones of strong aged wood.
FINISH Warm, lingering spice

1816 CASK

The 1816 Cask is a 113.6 proof cask strength whiskey with a robust flavor and incredibly smooth finish that instantly appeals to the true whiskey lover. We kept the proportions the same as the Reserve at 75% corn, 21% rye, and 4% malted barley, because they’re just right. A stronger whiskey than its brother, the Reserve, the 1816 Cask is just as smooth. After a glass of Cask, you may never go back.
