Introducing Batch 029: Centenary Cask!

Introducing Batch 029: Centenary Cask!

In the Spring of 2015, our Experimental Distillery became Chattanooga’s first distillery in 100 years. Centenary Cask honors this history with a blend of Experimental pot-distilled mash bills – all married & finished within a rare, 100-year-old Oloroso Sherry puncheon.

Age: Greater than 4 years

Proof: 100 (50% Alc/Vol)

Cooperage: Toasted & Charred Oak, 53 & 25 gallon

Style: Straight Bourbon Whiskey finished in an Oloroso Sherry Cask

Centenary barrel

Yes! You may have noticed this was the second fill for our centenary barrel. Our Experimental Batch 021: Vatted High Malt was finished in this barrel for 3 months in late 2021 before it was emptied and then filled with Batch XXIX for a 12 month finish.

The best part? It’s already been refilled! Our Centenary Cask will now be a yearly release each January, bottled and refilled in the solera style. Every 100-gallon batch will be uniquely different from the last, and contain traces of whiskeys from previous fills, including Barrel 001: the first barrel ever filled at our Experimental Distillery.

With quite a future ahead for this barrel, we can’t forget that its story starts long before it’s current chapter at Chattanooga Whiskey. Cheers to another 100 years!
