Mike Williams, Collier and McKeel’s Distiller was inspired by the story of William Collier and James McKeel. A Scot and Irishman respectively, they combined their knowledge of their native whiskeys and in 1790, founded a distillery in Tennessee. True to its roots, the Collier and McKeel distillery is based in Tennessee. Mike sources the grains from local farms and then grinds, mills and ferments them before distilling the wash in a 570 gallon copper pot still, made by Vendome Copper & Brass Works. He uses a traditional sour mash recipe of corn, rye and malted barley and adds water from the Middle Tennessee limestone aquifer. The whiskey is filtered in the “Lincoln County Process,” ‒ a method unique to Tennessee whiskies ‒ in which the spirit is filtered through several layers of sugar maple charcoal. Mike designed his own charcoal filtration system and burns his own sugar maple to make the charcoal. The whiskey ages in small, 15 gallon oak barrels, which slows the aging process a little bit thereby allowing for greater productivity. Every aspect of the process is hand-made; Mike’s thumbprint is on each bottle.

Tasting notes
A deep amber color, the whiskey presents caramel, vanilla and the sweet, smoky taste particular to Tennessee whiskey.

 Wine Enthusiast 92 points (Mar 2016)
Made from a mash of corn, rye and malted barley and aged four years, look for very sweet, bold aromas: lots of vanilla and caramel. The first sip is dry, showing cocoa, espresso and leather, but then the flavors seem to grow sweeter, more in line with the aromas, and coat the mouth with creme brulee and a hint of butterscotch. It finishes spiced, with a flicker of alcohol heat.

Technical notes
(80º) The mash bill is a 70/15/15 blend of corn, barley and rye.
