The Revived Tennessee Whiskey.
In the 19th century Benjamin Prichard distilled and perfected his bona fide Tennessee Whiskey. He passed away in 1822, and left his operation and utensils to his son Enoch, who unfortunately, had envisioned a life away from stills and casks. To our fortune, 5 generations later, in 1997, the distillery came into the hands of Phil Prichard, who opened the Prichard’s Distillery in Kelso, Tennessee. Because of their long legacy they’re the only producer in Lincoln County that is allowed to label their product as "Tennessee Whiskey" without using the Lincoln County Process.
Their spirits are a recreation of what was distilled and drank over 200 years ago. Not only are they craft and like to distinguish themselves from mass produced spirits, they also uniquely distill Tennessee Whiskey in pot stills.
Prichard’s Rye Whiskey is made from a mash of 70% Rye, 15% Corn and 15% Malted Barley. It’s aged in small, charred American Oak casks for up to 5 years.This true American Spirit offers both the sweet and the sour side of Rye. As Phil Prichard likes to say about his spirits, “If you are proud of it, put your name on it.”
Prichard’s Rye Whiskey was the winner of the BEST OF 2015 Flaviar Award in its respective category!
