Chattanooga Whiskey 1816 Reserve Solera Barrel Finished

Crafted with a mash bill of 75% corn, 21% rye, and 4% malted barley, this whiskey employs a version of the solera method. This means that the aged whiskey gets finished in a giant barrel that is never emptied, meaning that the blend of 2 to 10-year-old whiskeys makes for a complex and classic bourbon profile.

Chattanooga Whiskey was founded by Tim Piersant and Joe Ledbetter in 2011. Inspired by the city's rich distilling history, the two went on a mission to bring back "Whiskey to the People" and Hamilton County, and did not shy away from the battle to change the laws of their state in its pursuit. In March 2015, the company’s Experimental Distillery opened in the heart of downtown Chattanooga, which keeps over 100 different barrels in its aging cellar.

In 2015, they released the first whiskey produced in Chattanooga in 100 years, Chattanooga Whiskey "100", and began crafting their malt-forward style of straight bourbon whiskey, Tennessee High Malt, which was released in August 2019, marking a new era in the company history. In March 2017, the company opened its second distillery in downtown Chattanooga, the Riverfront Distillery, transforming a historic car dealership into one of the largest craft bourbon distilleries in the South, with a dunnage-style heated barrelhouse with room to age more than 4,500 barrels of whiskey. This is where the distillers make their signature Tennessee high malt.

Chattanooga Whiskey’s range comprises three lines. Its signature line of straight bourbon whiskey, Tennessee High Malt, is made from four grains, including three select specialty malts. The 1816 Bourbon Series consists of award-winning bourbons that started it all, while the Experimental Series is a limited collection of whiskeys and spirits made at the 100-gallon Experimental Distillery, utilizing a multitude of grains, barrels, techniques, and unique ingredients.

The Chattanooga 1816 Reserve is crafted with a mash bill of 75% corn, 21% rye, and 4% malted barley. It has them use their version of the solera process, meaning 100 fully-aged barrels get combined into one giant barrel that is never emptied. Following each small-batch bottling, the barrel is topped off with 10 to 15 mature barrels. In practice, the expression is a blend of 2 to 10-year-old whiskeys. Bottled at 90 proof, it's a complex spirit with a soft and sweet straight bourbon profile.
