Whisky Advocate Talks to Will Cheek

Bone McAllester Norton attorney Will Cheek is featured in the Winter 2013 issue of Whisky Advocate. The story titled “Tennessee Whiskey in High Definition” outlines the new formal mark of distinction for a product to be labeled “Tennessee whiskey”—it must be charcoal-mellowed before aging. Some critics say this inhibits the growth of the craft spirits industry, an area where Tennessee has recently experienced huge growth.

“Why hinder the rebirth of an industry that has huge profits for the state? Why put limits on the way to make whiskey to one production method?” he told the magazine.
