About Chattanooga Whiskey
Chattanooga Whiskey was founded in 2011 and galvanized public support via their “Vote Whiskey” campaign to overturn laws prohibiting distilling in the majority of Tennessee, dating back to prohibition. Following the campaign’s success in 2013, the Chattanooga Whiskey Experimental Distillery was established in 2015 as the first distillery back in Chattanooga in 100 years, and is still known as the only stand-alone Experimental whiskey distillery in the country. Focusing on malt-forward bourbon recipes, Chattanooga Whiskey coined and trademarked their signature style of straight bourbon whiskey from Tennessee now known as “Tennessee High Malt.” Within the first 100 experimental barrels produced, Chattanooga Whiskey selected barrel #91 as their flagship recipe, then established the Chattanooga Whiskey Riverfront Distillery where their award winning Chattanooga Whiskey 91 & Chattanooga Whiskey 111 small batch bourbons are produced every day, inspired by the original Experimental Barrel #91. Chattanooga Whiskey is sold in TN, GA, SC, AL, MS, FL, KY, CO, and soon to be TX. It is also available online at seelbachs.com.
