25 Jan New Store Pick of Davidson Reserve Rye Whiskey
Please join us this Friday January 27th from 4-7pm as we sample our brand-new Store Pick of Davidson Reserve’s Single Barrel Tennessee Straight Rye Whiskey!
Davidson Reserve joins the very small club of Tennessee distilleries that perform every function of the production process on-site. At their facility in West Nashville, they do everything except grow the grain (which is sourced locally from Renfroe Farms just up the road in Huntington), and they were the first bottled in bond distillery in the state to receive the sought-after designation since the 19th century.
At Davidson Reserve they believe the best whiskey reflects the people and the place from which it is produced. By sourcing their grains from what is essentially our back yard and by distilling this grain in their own local facility, Davidson Reserve impart the flavors of Tennessee directly into their whiskey. By working with a local grain producer and having complete control over the distillation process, they have created a product that isn’t standardized or uniform; and the whiskey directly reflects the flavors of each harvest as well as all the variables that change each day they distill.
Last spring, we got the enviable job of sampling some pretty incredible barrels from Davidson Reserve. Our first pick of their Tennessee Sour Mash was a huge hit, so much so that we went all in on a second barrel of Rye. Honestly, Katie and I both liked the Rye best and the result is a unique and amazing expression of Tennessee Rye Whiskey at its finest.
