      All about Tennessee whiskey

      What is Tennessee whiskey?

      Tennessee whiskey is a specific variety that's strictly regulated and comes only from Tennessee. This is a classic liquor that's a must-have in your home bar. Tennessee whiskey and bourbon look strikingly similar, but there are differences in the production process that set them apart.

      What's the difference between Tennessee whiskey and bourbon?

      The initial steps involved in producing both these liquor styles are the same. Distilled from at least 51% corn, both these spirits age in charred oak barrels for that rich, smooth flavor. The key difference between Tennessee whiskey and bourbon lies in the step that precedes oak aging. With Tennessee, the spirit is charcoal-filtered. Lincoln County Process is the process of charcoal filtration in which fresh whiskey passes through charcoal chips and is then sent to mature in oak casks. For a whiskey to attain the Tennessee label, it must undergo the Lincoln County Process of distillation in Tennessee.
