Chattanooga Whiskey Introduces New Signature Offerings

Chattanooga, TN, August 5, 2019 – Chattanooga Whiskey announced the release of its new signature expressions—Chattanooga Whiskey 91 and Chattanooga Whiskey CASK 111.

Following the success of the 2011 community-powered “Vote Whiskey” campaign, Chattanooga Whiskey became the first legal distillery in Chattanooga in over 100 years. “The journey of Chattanooga Whiskey began eight years ago,” said Tim Piersant, CEO and Founder, “We changed the laws, built two distilleries, and created our own style of straight bourbon whiskey—Tennessee High Malt—and we couldn’t be more excited to release it now.”

The signature recipe—known as “Barrel 91”— for Chattanooga Whiskey 91 was selected by Head Distiller Grant McCracken from the first 100 experimental barrels created at the Chattanooga Whiskey Experimental Distillery.

“Crafted using a 4 grain mash bill, including three specialty malts; rye malt, caramel malt and honey malt, gives Chattanooga Whiskey 91 a distinctly malt-forward flavor profile,” McCracken said. “Each step of the process has been crafted to highlight the complexity of these ingredients.” Medium bodied, Chattanooga Whiskey 91 has a taste profile of dried apricot, sweet tea, and honeyed toast, with a lingering, malty-sweet finish.

Releasing as a partner offering, Chattanooga Whiskey CASK 111 is the unfiltered, barrel strength expression of Tennessee High Malt. Crafted in small batches from a single fermentation, Chattanooga Whiskey CASK 111 is full bodied with a taste profile of chocolate covered cherry, toasted coconut, and cinnamon with a warming, malty finish.

“The release of Chattanooga Whiskey 91 and Chattanooga Whiskey CASK 111–100% made in Chattanooga—is the culmination of all our efforts,” said Piersant. “It fulfills our commitment to crafting the best sipping whiskey from Tennessee.”

Available throughout the Southeast, Chattanooga Whiskey 91 is bottled at 91 proof with a suggested retail price of $34.99 for a 750ml bottle. Chattanooga Whiskey CASK 111 is bottled at 111 proof with a suggested retail price of $44.99 for a 750ml bottle.
