True Tennessee Whiskey is special. It's not just whiskey made in Tennessee. And it's not Bourbon Whiskey. It's more. We first bring limestone filtered water from the Big Richland Creek and use it to make a mash of corn, rye and malted barley. Then we distill it in our hand-hammered copper pot still. At this point, it changes from plain whiskey to Tennessee Whiskey when we drip it through several feet of sugar maple charcoal, made from trees cut by local sawmills and burned. This gives Collier and McKeel the smooth, sweet, smoky taste that Tennessee Whiskey is known for. Only true Tennessee Whiskey is put through this extra step. We age Collier and McKeel in oak barrels to add intense flavors. And unlike some whiskies that have an artificial time table for the proper time in a barrel, we determine when it's time to bottle the oldfashioned way – when it tastes right.
