Founder's: 10th Anniversary Blend
In the Spring of 2012, we began blending and bottling “1816” - an award-winning whiskey that helped overturn century old distilling laws. While eventually succeeded by our own signature “Barrel 91” recipe, the whiskey’s impact is never forgotten.
Our Founder’s 10th Anniversary Blend is a blend of 3 whiskey recipes distilled in both Chattanooga, TN and Lawrenceburg, IN. This combination of traditional and innovative mash bills showcases the unique influence and balance between the 3 whiskeys - each symbolic of our founding creed: “Rules are Good, Change Them.”

About the "1816 Barrel"
After 3-4 years of primary and secondary aging, casks of the original law-changing "1816" recipe (1816RES) are transferred into our 650 gallon charred oak Founder's Barrel. Here, casks of different ages marry together until ready for inclusion into the Anniversary Blend.
