When my husband and I were out strolling the hip trendy area of Main St. in Chattanooga, TN, we were stopped in our tracks by this sign. Even in it's black and white simplicity, the sign peaked our interest immediately. So, we decided to stop in for a quick peak to see just what 'Tennessee Stillhouse' was all about. Located right across from the popular Chattanooga Choo Choo, Tennessee Stillhouse is in the perfect location for the, ah hem, stopper by-ers like us.
When we stepped inside, the greeting was relaxed and friendly and we were told about the distillery tour which included a whiskey flight, including the Old Fashion that was the popular drink of choice by the character, Don Draper, of the show Mad Men. I was excited to hear about the complimentary syrups made using natural herbs, natural sugar and fruits and the ingredients used to brew their whiskey which uses all natural, non GMO ingredients. The tour was extremely in depth and gave me an awesome inside knowledge into the life of a distillery. The decor was amazingly appropriate with walls lined with old recycled barrels, original concrete floors..It definitely exuded the vintage charm that I so love with Amazing character. The facility was clean and neat, yes, that's a plus! They even have an outdoor area for those who wish to rent the facility for events. And, at the end of the tour, we were greeted with a flight of varying spirits that included their handmade syrups...delicious!
So, all in all, I would highly recommend this tour and would encourage this as part of your 'things to do' while in Chattanooga...or, if you live in Chattanooga, it's a great date idea or girlfriends only tour or hanging with the guy's tour...Oh, and they are the only place where you can purchase their ahhhh-mazing 113 proof whiskey on Sunday. Enjoy the photos.
