Tennessee Whiskey: The Lincoln County Process

You might be wondering what makes Tennessee Whiskey different from other whiskeys, bourbons, and brown liquors. Well, it all comes down to one thing: Lincoln County. Yes, Lincoln County, Tennessee, population 33,000 and some change.

Before we get too deep into the weeds here with a history/science lesson, a few basics about how most whiskeys are made (hold on tight, we’re going to move quickly): you mill some grains (corn, wheat, etc.) to the consistency of cornmeal. You then cook the cornmeal mash in order to ferment it. Once the fermentation sets in, you’ll begin to get alcohol. That alcohol has to then be distilled. Distillation takes place in that big copper thing you see in all distilleries. Once it’s distilled, you get what we call “white whiskey,” also known as moonshine. Careful, that un-aged white whiskey’ll strip the paint off the walls when it comes straight out of the still.

Once whiskey is distilled, it’s time to officially make it Tennessee Whiskey. In order for it to be called TN Whiskey rather than just any old whiskey, it must go through what is called the Lincoln County Process. It’s a simple, yet effective, technique that gives Tennessee Whiskey its characteristic smoothness and clean mouthfeel.

Charcoal is the key ingredient in the Lincoln County Process. The raw white whiskey is simply filtered through sugar maple charcoal as a way to take some of the edge off. The porous charcoal absorbs some of the harshness of the fresh distillate while giving it a nice mellow flavor.

Charles Nelson once said, “the charcoal mellowing process removes some of the heating elements that cause an unpleasant farewell. However, all Whiskey can cause an unpleasant farewell when consumed in too large of quantities. ”

Tennessee Whiskey and the Lincoln County Process

One of the things that makes Tennessee whiskey unique is the Lincoln County Process, which refers to the use of sugar maple charcoal to filter new-make whiskey before aging.

Not all Tennessee whiskeys use the Lincoln County process, which is named after the county that was once Jack Daniels’ home. (Subsequent redistricting put the distillery in neighboring Moore County.) However, Jack Daniels and George Dickel, the two largest Tennessee distilleries by a wide margin, both rely on sugar maple charcoal filtration to mellow their spirits.

These two big players use slightly different tactics. Jack Daniels makes its charcoal onsite, using unaged distillate as a firestarter on sugar maple staves. Those staves are then ground into chunks that are used to make a 10 foot deep filter bed. New-make distillate is dripped through the filter bed using gravity, a process the distillery says “takes over a week to complete.”

George Dickel uses an even deeper filter bed – 13 feet – and chills the new make to 40 degrees Fahrenheit before filtration. At the Dickel distillery, new make whiskey actually steeps in the charcoal rather than just dripping through, which they say leads to a more complete filtration.

Tennessee whiskey isn’t protected by the Federal Standards of Identity of Distilled Spirits the same way that bourbon is. Instead, the only federal recognition of the category is through NAFTA, which says that Tennessee whiskey is a straight bourbon whiskey produced in Tennessee.

Selected Recipes by Category

Narrowing the recipes down was the hardest part of this project, and we included as many as we could. We received more than 360 amazing family recipes and heartfelt stories, with a goal of including 200 in the book. It was not easy. We worked with a team of food writers and enthusiasts to help make the selections, and we’ve posted the recipe names, contributors, and their hometowns here.
