Born in Germany in 1818, George Dickel was a successful Nashville merchant with a love for fine whisky. In 1870 he established the Dickel Distillery in Cascade Hollow and the business thrived until 1910, when Prohibition was established in Tennessee and forced all distillers within the state to cease operations. In 1958, Master Distiller Ralph Dupps rebuilt the distillery and began production once again. To ensure the whisky's authenticity, Dupps obtained Dickel's original manuscripts detailing the unique recipe and process used in the creation of his distinctive spirit. Today, Master Distiller John Lunn runs the distillery, carrying on the tradition of fine Tennessee Whisky.
Matured for ten to twelve years, George Dickel "Barrel Select" is a remarkable Tennessee Whisky with an enticing nose and a sophisticated, well-rounded palate. Elegant aromas of corn, honey, citrus fruit and tobacco pave the way for bold flavors of corn and oak, accented by complex notes of dried stone fruit, caramel, baking spice and spearmint. Hints of cinnamon, allspice and honey linger through the finish.
