Tennessee whiskey is a type of American whiskey. This whiskey is generally similar to bourbon, in that it is composed of a mash of at least 51% corn (maize) and is aged in new, charred oak barrels, typically for four or more years.
The only difference between Bourbon and Tennessee whiskey is that Tennessee whiskey goes through a filtering stage called the Lincoln County Process. This process consists of the whiskey being filtered through a thick layer of maple charcoal. This step gives the whiskey a distinctive flavor and also can be thought of as jump-starting the aging process. It takes place between distillation and barreling. The process itself is named for Lincoln County, Tennessee, which is where the Jack Daniel's distillery was originally located. In 1871, the Jack Daniel's distillery, and the surrounding area became part of the newly created Moore County.
Presently, there are only two brands of Tennessee whiskey on the market: Jack Daniel's and George Dickel.
