They came….they fought…and they won. By decree of the Tennessee General Assembly and with the official seal of Gov. Bill Haslam, Chattanooga Whiskey will henceforth be distilled in Chattanooga.
Up until this point, Chattanooga Whiskey has been made in Indiana, due to laws that date back to Prohibition. But no longer! Chattanooga Whiskey is finally coming home to Chattanooga, bringing with it jobs, tax revenue—and a great whiskey. What better way to celebrate than by hosting a huge party at the site of your future distillery? Oh, and by offering free tickets to that celebration, naturally.
At last count, Chattanooga Whiskey has received more than 3,000 RSVPs to the event. That’s a lot of whiskey fans in one place, all enjoying $4 Chattanooga Whiskey cocktails and food from local food trucks.
It’s all happening Friday, May 31 from 6:30-11:30 p.m. at the Chattanooga Whiskey Distillery, located downtown at 1400 Fort Street. Visit the Chattanooga Whiskey Facebook page for instructions on how to claim your free ticket, and get ready to party like it’s 1919. VIP tickets, which include a tour inside the future distillery, may also be purchased.
