Chattanooga Announces Rye Whiskey
Chattanooga Whiskey added another whiskey to the Tennessee High Malt family. This time it's a rye! The new 99 Rye is made from four different grains. It's the caramel grains that really shine through. Chattanooga continues to impress! I'm excited that this will be a flagship product moving forward. See below for more details about this release.

Inspired by one of Chattanooga Whiskey Experimental Distillery’s first batches of whiskey, Tennessee Rye Malt is the rich, malt-forward approach to rye. This rare and flavorful style was made from an abundance of slow toasted and drum roasted rye malt, resulting in a bold reinvention of rye, brimming with sweet and savory notes of candied fruit, herbs, and spice.
