Collier and Mckeel Tennessee Whiskey

Collier and Mckeel Tennessee Whiskey 750ml    
Sku: 1879184*

Mike Williams, Collier and McKeel’s Distiller was inspired by the story of William Collier and James McKeel. A Scot and Irishman respectively, they combined their knowledge of their native whiskeys and in 1790, founded a distillery in Tennessee. True to its roots, the Collier and McKeel distillery is based in Tennessee. Mike sources the grains from local farms and then grinds, mills and ferments them before distilling the wash in a 570 gallon copper pot still, made by Vendome Copper & Brass Works. He uses a traditional sour mash recipe of corn, rye and malted barley and adds water from the Middle Tennessee limestone aquifer. The whiskey is filtered in the “Lincoln County Process,” ‒ a method unique to Tennessee whiskies ‒ in which the spirit is filtered through several layers of sugar maple charcoal. Mike designed his own charcoal filtration system and burns his own sugar maple to make the charcoal. The whiskey ages in small, 15 gallon oak barrels, which slows the aging process a little bit thereby allowing for greater productivity. Every aspect of the process is hand-made; Mike’s thumbprint is on each bottle.
