- Tennessee whiskey
Tennessee whiskey is a
bourbon whiskeythat undergoes a filtering stage called the Lincoln County Process, in which the whiskey is filtered through a thick layer of maple charcoalbefore it is put into casks for aging. This step gives the whiskey a distinctive flavor. The process itself is named for Lincoln County, Tennessee, which is where the Jack Daniel'sdistillery was originally located. In 1871, the Jack Daniel's distillery and the surrounding area became part of the newly created Moore County.
Presently, there are only two brands of Tennessee whiskey on the market:
Jack Daniel'sand George Dickel.
"Tennessee Whiskey" is also a song by country singer, David Alan Coe. The song says the woman who saved him from his addiction to the bottle is "as smooth as Tennessee whiskey".
