Chattanooga Whiskey Batch 035 Centenary Cask Hero

Chattanooga Whiskey announced the newest release in its award-winning Experimental Single Batch Series: Batch 035: Centenary Cask.  

An annual release in the series, Centenary Cask is an evolving blend of experimental pot-distilled mash bills married and finished in a rare, 100-year-old Oloroso Sherry puncheon. Refilled in the solera style, each annual 100-gallon batch is uniquely different from the last, while containing traces of whiskeys from previous fills.  

Batch XXXV is the third release using the centenary cask, which was first filled in 2021. This year’s release sees the addition of two unique barrels, chosen for exhibiting characteristics that would enhance flavors derived from the centenary cask itself, including Chattanooga Whiskey’s signature “Barrel 91” recipe, and a singular recipe made with a wide variety of malted barley and rye.”

After these hand-selected barrels were married for over a year in the antique cask, 100 gallons were removed for bottling before new barrels were selected to top up the solera-style barrel once more.

“Blending may be the final creative act of the distiller, allowing us a chance to further develop harmony and complexity in the final whiskey,” Levi Zehrung, Experimental Production Manager, said in a news release. “What makes the Centenary Cask so distinct actually lies within its constraints. Because the size of the Oloroso cask limits the blend to about 3-4 barrels, each barrel must therefore be carefully chosen to work well together and to balance the bold, antique notes of Oloroso.”

Batch XXXV: Centenary Cask is available at the Chattanooga Whiskey Experimental Distillery at $69.99 for a 750ml bottle, and available online for shipping to select states on It is bottled at 100 proof.
