We re-wrote century old laws with our Vote Whiskey campaign, and now we can finally make whiskey in our hometown. Discover how Chattanooga Whiskey changed the rules and get inspired to change some yourself.


Smooth with a hint of spice, you’ll love the clean finish of our 1816 Reserve. The Reserve is a 90-proof high-rye bourbon, aged 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.

COLOR Deep Amber
AROMA Extremely balanced oak and rye character. Strong notes of caramel, light vanilla, butterscotch candy and baking spices with a distinct, earthy rye undertone.
FLAVOR Balanced sweet and spicy oak character with a medium body.
FINISH Clean, lightly warming and slightly drying finish.

1816 CASK

1816 Cask is a robust 113.6 proof blend, coming from barrels selected for their bold character and high proof cask notes. It is an immediately more intense whiskey on the nose with vanilla and dark toffee notes up front and cinnamon notes in the background. The finish is warm and slightly spicy, extremely smooth for its proof.

PROOF 113.6
COLOR Mahogany
AROMA Amplified oak and spice character, compared to Reserve. Confectionary notes of toffee pudding, vanilla bean and brown sugar. Background notes of cinnamon and black tea with a light, earthy rye undertone.
FLAVOR Bold, sweet and spicy approach with a rich, full body.
FINISH Warming with a velvety, mouth-coating finish.

We’re excited to announce that we’re expanding right here in downtown Chattanooga! For more information on our new larger distillery, click here.


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.


Opened in Spring of 2015, the Tennessee Stillhouse is making the first legal whiskey distilled in Chattanooga in over 100 years. It’s part experiment and innovation lab, part museum and all good. It’s a place to showcase the craft process and the whiskey tradition we come from, while also allowing us to get creative with techniques and showcase our current product. Each tour concludes with a full tasting of Chattanooga Whiskey and locally-produced Dr. Thacher’s Cocktail Syrup.


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 over 20 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.


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 peek 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.
