A lovely warm, sweet, and floral Bourbon made in the new Chattanooga style.

For much of the last one hundred years, it was illegal to distill in Tennessee except in a few special counties. In the mid 2000s, the winds of change began to blow and one-by-one, most counties opened up to craft distilling operations. Chattanooga Whiskey is the first legal distillery in the town of Chattanooga after more than a century of Prohibition and complications. It took years of law-changing efforts, launched by the founders Tim Piersant and Joe Ledbetter in 2011, to finally amend the Chattanooga distilling laws. They released their first bottles in 2012 with Spirit sourced from Lawrenceburg Distiller of Indiana and they started distilling themselves in 2015.

Chattanooga Whiskey 91 Straight Bourbon is built on the foundation of what they call "Tennessee High Malt Bourbon." The mash bill is different from anything we’ve seen before — 51% yellow dent corn, malted rye, caramel malted barley, and honey malted barley. The mash is allowed to ferment for seven days (that’s a long time) and aged for two years in new white oak. Then the barrels are married in a four thousand gallon oak Solera barrel. That means they never fully empty the vat. They use ten to fifteen barrels worth per batch and top it off with the same number, so the average age of the Spirit gets older with each batch.

Smartass Corner:
The "91" comes from the formulation being the ninety-first test barrel from their Experimental Distillery. So they also bottle it at 91 proof (45.5% ABV).

Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
Bourbon Is a ''new barrel Spirit'': One of the legal requirements for Bourbon is that it only be aged in brand new oak charred barrels.
At any given time, there are more barrels of Bourbon in Kentucky than there are people. The population of the Bluegrass State is about 4.4 million. Today there are more than 5 million barrels of Bourbon sitting in the rick-houses of that Old Kentucky Home. That’s nearly 300 bottles of Bourbon per person, or about 60 gallons each.
Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
"Remember that iconic poster from World War II showing Rosie the Riveter as a patriotic American woman doing her part for the war effort? Well, hundreds of businesses did their part too, and the Bourbon distillers stepped right up with ‘em.

Distilleries all over Kentucky and Tennessee were re-tooled to distill fuel alcohol and ferment penicillin cultures to treat wounded soldiers."
Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
