Tenn South began when a radiologist and an engineer set out on a mission to create the finest Tennessee Whiskey possible. The pair wanted to respect the time honored traditions of Southern distilling but sought to infuse modern twists. They wanted to make their own whiskey with their own hands, using nothing but the best ingredients. The team began extensive and arduous research on techniques and locations – and the results uncovered were more than promising! They quickly came to understand that they could make ultra-premium spirits to rival the best available anywhere in the world. In 2009, Tennessee enacted legislation legalizing distilleries in 41 counties which opened the door for the creation of the Tenn South Distillery. Fortuitously, Tennessee and Kentucky are located on a large limestone geological feature that filters water exceptionally well, and also imparts a rich mineral content. This superbly clear water is world famous for whiskey production. After an exhaustive search for the best water available, an idyllic 28 acres were purchased outside Lynnville in Giles County. Shortly after, Whiskey production and barreling were started, and Tenn South has never slowed down. We take great pride in our production of superior small batch spirits rooted in Tennessee whiskey-making traditions. We welcome you to try a bottle and become a part of both our story and our family. Thank you for your support!
