CHATTANOOGA WHISKEY ANNOUNCES THE RELEASE OF EXPERIMENTAL BATCH 031: RED, WHITE & BLUE GRIST
Chattanooga, TN (May 2023) – Chattanooga Whiskey announced today the release of their newest whiskey,
Experimental Batch 031: Red, White & Blue Grist. Made with a blend of stone-ground red, white, and blue corn
varieties, this commemorative batch celebrates the 10th anniversary of Tennessee’s “Whiskey Bill,” which, in
May of 2013, legalized spirits production in Chattanooga, Tennessee, for the first time in over 100 years.
Following on the heels of last month’s Founder’s Anniversary Blend, Red, White & Blue Grist turns the
company’s focus back to their prolific Experimental Single Batch Series, which – after being named Best Craft
Producer of 2023 by Whisky Magazine’s Icons of Whisky – has continued to garner industry attention for its
innovative array of whiskeys, spirits, and liqueurs.
This – their 31st batch since 2017 – is a high-malt bourbon made with three stone-ground corn varieties from
Riverview Farms Milling (Ranger, GA), along with more than 25% pale malted barley. Aged for over 4 years in
charred & toasted barrels, the finished whiskey showcases the delicate flavor impact of each corn varietal;
offering notes of dried fig, sweet corn cake, berries & cream, and almond croissant.
“Every one of our Experimental Single Batches is meant to have its own personality and story, and Batch 031
is no different. Red, White & Blue Grist highlights the unique flavor contributions from less common, stone-milled
corn varieties, while also telling the origin story of how our Whiskey got started,” said Grant McCracken,
Founding Distiller and CPO.
Over 11 years ago, Chattanooga Whiskey’s Vote Whiskey campaign galvanized the local Chattanooga
community into action, leading to the drafting of the now famous “Whiskey Bill.” Since the bill was signed into
law by Governor Bill Haslam on May 16th, 2013, dozens of distilleries have since opened across the state – creating
renewed interest and growth from one of the world’s most storied whiskey-making regions. In honor of the
anniversary of the bill’s signing, each commemorative bottle is adorned with a sticker that is inspired by the
seal found on House Bill 102 – a copy of which is on display at the company’s Experimental Distillery.
