George Dickel is still hand-made, step by step. The folks at the distillery proudly and painstakingly adhere to the process that George himself approved more than a century ago.
George Dickel White No. 1 Corn Whisky is a 91-proof whisky with a clear appearance and initial aroma that is soft, yet full of raw grain -- not dissimilar from moonshine. However, the raw notes vanish upon a mellow and smooth first taste, with a creamy sweet corn flavor. And finally, the Chill Charcoal Mellowing process nods to George's historic affection for "Winter Whisky" and gives the liquid a softer, smoother finish than traditional moonshines.
Each year, at peak periods of maturation, Master Distiller John Lunn selects approximately 10 barrels of his best, most mellow whisky to produce an exceptionally fine small-batch Tennessee whisky. Aged between 1012 years, this 86-proof gem provides a consistently smooth taste, perfect balance, rich amber color and a hint of vanilla. Aided by charcoal mellowing and the slow aging process, these distinct characteristics create a super-premium whisky in a class of its own.
Sometimes, the only way to improve on a classic is to add moonshine. Ole Smoky took the undeniably delicious flavors of butter, cream, toasted pecans, and caramel and blended them all up with moonshine. The result was nothing short of heavenly.
There' s not a Bloody Mary in the world that cant be improved by a little bit of dill pickle. Thats why we created The Real Dill Shine, a perfect dill pickle, pickled in our moonshine. Firm, crunchy and dill-icious, you can munch on it and then have a dill pickle shot to follow.
In 1866, Domenico Canale's spirits business was booming. Rail cars bearing oak-aged whiskeys rolled in and out of the D. Canale & Co. warehouse at Huling Station, and any bottle featuring the Old Dominick brand was known to be irrefutably fine, setting the bar for whiskey drinkers far and wide. This whiskey is an homage to the whiskeys of 1866 Memphis, with a high-rye mash bill reminiscent of those offered by Canale in his heyday.
As with Dickels corn-based whiskeys, Dickel Rye is very silky smooth, that charcoal mellowing having done its duty admirably. But theres ample rye character here chewy raisin bread with ample cinnamon notes. Vanilla a-plenty. Cocoa powder finish. Overall, the body is light and easygoing, a pleasant and sweet rye that would work well in any cocktail.
Old fashioned root beer gets the royal Tennessee treatment. Thats right, we took the flavors of root beer and blended it with our whiskey to create this unforgettably delicious concoction. Were bringing root beer back.
Theres nothing more refreshing than a tall glass of southern peach tea. That is, until we took the flavors of ripe peaches and home-brewed sun tea and combined it with our whiskey. This sweet, caramel-colored concoction is sure to become a porch-sipping favorite.
Were partial to the sweeter side of life and whiskey for that matter. So we blended the flavor of luscious blackberries in with our whiskey to create a smooth, satisfying sip to keep things interesting.
