Chattanooga Whiskey Unveils Upcoming Release in Acclaimed Bottled in Bond Series: Spring 2020 Vintage

Barreled from January 2020 through June 2020, this seasonally-inspired vintage was crafted to showcase the lighter spring and summer flavors imparted from the inclusion of multiple wheated mash bills in this – their 7th blend since 2021.

As with previous vintages, Spring 2020 was produced exclusively at Chattanooga Whiskey’s Riverfront Distillery and is an ongoing collaborative effort between the entire distilling team – to create a new, seasonally-inspired blend for each 6-month distilling “season” from the variety of bourbon recipes distilled within the vintage period.

“Each distilling season, our entire grain-to-glass production team comes together to develop our newest Bottled in Bond vintage. Rather than solely using our signature “Barrel 91″ recipe, the team gathers every unique mash bill that was distilled in the 6-month season and develops a blend to reflect the character of that time period.” – Grant McCracken, Founding Distiller

The Spring 2020 blend contains three versions of their acclaimed wheated recipe (B005, B005v2, B005v3) – which contain multiple varieties of malted wheat and malted barley never before used in this mash bill. These malted grains include Tennessee-grown malted wheat, honey malted barley, and a small amount of cherrywood smoked malted barley. Information on Chattanooga Whiskey’s mash bills can be found at their website.

“Although most of our distilling team’s experimentation originates at our Experimental Distillery, we’ve never been afraid to make tweaks to certain recipes on the larger scale of our Riverfront Distillery. These more nuanced experiments not only provide the team with a deeper understanding of how our classic recipes “work” within our Riverfront Distillery, but – as a finished product – become a time capsule of what our team was thinking about 4+ years ago.” – Grant McCracken, Founding Distiller.

Made in four batches of 10 barrels each, this limited release offers spring and summer-friendly notes of candied ginger, vanilla custard, orange blossom honey, and muddled mint, with a fresh oak finish.
