About George Dickel 11 Year Old Bottled in Bond Tennessee Whisky
Forty years after the signing of the Declaration of Independence, George A. Dickel was born in a rural town in eastern Tennessee. By 1867, Dickel was an established Nashville merchant but moved his family to the city of Tullahoma (situated in south-central Tennessee), where he purchased the Cascade Hollow Distillery. After working tirelessly at the distillery, Dickel declared that his spirits were of equal quality to the finest scotch, and followed in the Scottish tradition of spelling whisky without an "e".
While George A. Dickel Distillery was forced to close its doors as a result of Prohibition, it was rebuilt in 1958 by Master Distiller Ralph Dupps. To ensure the whisky's authenticity, Dupps obtained the original manuscripts in which Dickel detailed his unique recipe and distillation processes. Today, Master Blender and distiller Nicole Austin carries on the tradition of excellence that has made Dickel whisky a symbol of quality for over a century.
George Dickel’s 2020 Bottled in Bond release is an 11-year-old whisky that was distilled in 2008. While a bit younger, it follows in the footsteps of the bold and balanced 13-year-old that has received several "Whisky of the Year" awards. Crafted with a mash bill of 84% corn, 8% rye, and 8% malted barley, it employs the same charcoal-filtration as its predecessor. Bottled at 100 proof, it retains the nuttiness, sweetness, and fruity notes with an overall profile that is big and complex yet approachable.

About American Whiskey
There are two main representatives of the American whiskey family, bourbon, and rye, but some other spirits don't fall into those two strictly regulated categories.
There's equally strictly regulated American single malt, made from 100% malted barley, Tennessee whiskey, essentially bourbon filtered through maple charcoal and aged in new charred oak barrels.
And then there's moonshine, a high proof (150- 170 proof) distilled spirit mainly made out of corn which gained popularity during the prohibition.
