Chattanooga Riverfront Distillery and Experimental Distillery
The Whiskey Krew tours Chattanooga Whiskey’s Riverfront Distillery by none other than the man himself, CEO & Co-Founder Tim Piersant. We learned so much and meeting Tim was great. Afterwards we walked over to the Experimental Distillery to quench our thirst with a couple of flights with six tastings. Chatt Whiskey Silver, Chatt Whiskey 91, Chatt Whiskey Cask 111, Chatt Whiskey 99 Rye, Chatt Whiskey Batch 015 Coffee infused and an old fashioned with Dr. Thacher’s cocktail syrup. Great atmosphere, great people and great whiskey!
Who makes it? American Freedom Distillery
Mash Bill: 65% corn, 30% rye, 5% malted barley
I break out a bottle of signed Horse Soldier bourbon that I’ve been holding onto since last year. I jumped out of a plane last month and my videographer was a Horse Soldier ambassador so I knew it was time to give it a review. Kris thought it was pretty good straight but definitely benefited by adding an ice cube bringing out more of the flavours. Erik could taste the sweet of the corn, even buttered corn while being very mellow.
Kris gave it 6.5
Erik gave it 7.0
How much: This will run you about 45 dollars
An amazing story of green berets being dropped in Afghanistan after 9/11 to fight the taliban on horseback and when they finished fighting for our country, then decided to make a bourbon. They even made a movie about them, 12 Strong. Plus, 500 pounds of metal from the World Trade Center was used to make the molds for their bottles! Their motto, ” Legendary Men, Legendary Spirits”.
