Tennessee’s Company Distilling Releases “Three Wood” Whiskey

Company Distilling announces the second release within its experimental product lineup, Tennessee Three Wood, a Straight Tennessee Whiskey Finished with Apple Wood. This is the second exploratory offering by Company Distilling, the first (Seismic Rye Single Barrel) was announced in November of 2022. 

“Tennessee Whiskey was the logical next addition to our product portfolio. At 86.5 proof, we feel it is the perfect complement to our tasting lineup and brings some welcomed sweet notes to the spiciness of our rye,” said Founder & Master Distiller, Jeff Arnett. “The proof point (86.5) is the area code for the Knoxville area, which we think is a fun hidden fact and continues to create a sense of place for our products in East Tennessee.”  

Mellowed through maple charcoal, matured in charred white oak, and finished with toasted apple wood, Company Distilling’s Tennessee Three Wood celebrates the whiskey-making heritage of Tennessee. Through the “Lincoln County Process,” this recipe explores some of the diversity of fruit and hardwood trees in Tennessee. 

A decade ago, the State of Tennessee passed legislation that defined what could be labeled as “Tennessee Whiskey.” If you compare the points of this 2013 state law to the federal code for bourbon, Tennessee Whiskey cannot be made in just any U.S. state but must be made in Tennessee. It also adds one additional process requirement beyond bourbon, which is that the new make distillate must be filtered through hard sugar maple charcoal after distillation and prior to entry into the new charred oak barrel for maturation.  

Company Distilling invites you to celebrate International Tennessee Whiskey Day on May 21st with the following opportunities to gather aound, meet Master Distiller Jeff Arnett, and purchase the newly released Company Distilling Tennessee Three Wood.
