Tenn South Distillery
This spirit dwells in sugar maple charcoal, the Lincoln County Process, before entering the new, charred white oak barrels for aging. We use the Lincoln County Process quite a bit differently than others. Since our new whiskey is only "hearts", we don't need to use charcoal filtering to remove impurities or take off a harsh edge. Instead, we allow our spirits to acquire a unique, sweet maple smokiness from the charcoal. This signature step serves to differentiate Clayton James Tennessee Whiskey from all other Tennessee Whiskies.
