While Tennessee whiskey and bourbon share a lot of similarities, there are some distinct differences. Both start out with the same requirements – distilled using at least 51% corn, not distilled over 160 proof, barreled at a proof level of 125 or below and using a new charred oak barrel. However, Tennessee whiskey has two extra defining characteristics. The obvious difference is that Tennessee whiskey must be made in Tennessee as opposed to bourbon which can be made anywhere in the United States. The other difference is that Tennessee whiskey is charcoal-filtered before it goes into the barrel for aging. Using a method known as the Lincoln County Process, the distillate is filtered or steeped through charcoal chips before entering barrels. The charcoal filtering process strips the whiskey of some of its harsher flavors, creating a smoother, easier-to-drink whiskey.
