Distillers Battle over Tennessee Whiskey Definition

The Tennessean featured an article over the heated debate about a state law defining what “Tennessee Whiskey” is. Several Bonelaw clients are featured in the news, including Diageo, Nelson’s Greenbrier, Full Throttle, Corsair and Pritchard’s. The argument centers around how whiskey should be made—bourbon filtered through sugar-maple charcoal before it is sealed in new, charred, white oak barrels before it is aged.  Some distillers support a state law that strictly defines Tennessee Whiskey, but others want the flexibility to use their own recipes to make Tennessee Whiskey.

Read more about the debate here.  We are excited to see the passion about distilling in Tennessee.
