Chattanooga Whiskey Releases Red, White & Blue Grist

Red White & Blue Grist Chattanooga Whiskey bottle hero

Chattanooga Whiskey announced today the release of their newest whiskey, Experimental Batch 031: Red, White & Blue Grist. Made with a blend of stone-ground red, white and blue corn varieties, this commemorative batch celebrates the 10th anniversary of Tennessee’s “Whiskey Bill,” which, in May of 2013, legalized spirits production in Chattanooga, Tennessee, for the first time in over 100 years. 

Following on the heels of last month’s Founder’s Anniversary Blend, Red, White & Blue Grist turns the company’s focus back to their Experimental Single Batch Series, which has continued to garner industry attention. 

This, their 31st batch since 2017, is a high malt bourbon made with three stone-ground corn varieties from  Riverview Farms Milling (Ranger, GA), along with more than 25% pale malted barley. Aged for over 4 years in charred and toasted barrels, the finished whiskey showcases the delicate flavor impact of each corn varietal; offering notes of dried fig, sweet corn cake, berries & cream, almond croissant. 

Over 11 years ago, Chattanooga Whiskey’s Vote Whiskey campaign galvanized the local Chattanooga community into action, leading to the drafting of the now famous “Whiskey Bill.” Since the bill was signed into law by Governor Bill Haslam on May 16th, 2013, dozens of distilleries have since opened across the state, creating  renewed interest and growth from one of the world’s most storied whiskey making regions. In honor of the anniversary of the bill’s signing, each commemorative bottle is adorned with a sticker that was inspired by the seal found on House Bill 102, a copy of which is on display at the company’s Experimental Distillery.  

The distillery now hosts more than 40,000 visitors per year and serves as a hub to push the boundaries of craft  whiskey. The Riverfront Distillery is the production home to Chattanooga Whiskey’s signature Tennessee High Malt expressions: Chattanooga Whiskey 91, Cask 111, 99 Rye, and the Bottled in Bond Vintage Series.
