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, and 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.

Chattanooga Whiskey 99 Rye is a Tennessee rye malt made from a four-grain mash bill that includes a blend of slow toasted and drum roasted rye malt.

This expression is a rich, malt-forward reinvention of rye, inspired by one of the first batches of whiskey created at the company’s Experimental Distillery.
