Tennessee Whiskey

Overview Of Tennessee Whiskey

America is known for various contributions to the global population and one of these exciting contributions is whiskey!  There are two famous brands that are produced in the United States, each equally delicious in their own right although slightly different – Kentucky whiskey and Tennessee whiskey.

The primary ingredients and aging process Tennessee whiskey has to undergo in order to become that world famous drink is very similar to bourbon.  This alcoholic beverage is made from a minimum of 51% corn, must be aged for at least 2 years in newly charred oak barrels AND must be bottled at 80 proof or 40% above.  Basically, yes the distilling and barrel aging process is almost exactly like bourbon; the only difference is that Tennessee whiskey will undergo something known as the ‘Lincoln County Process’ whereas bourbon does not.
