You won?t find Cascade Hollow on most maps. Nestled on the Highland Rim of the Cumberland Plateau, you will find us about halfway between Nashville and Chattanooga. The ancient limestone shelf of this plateau provides water than runs fresh and clear from the nearby Cascade Springs, and it made the perfect spot to build a distillery.
In 1870, George A. Dickel used this same pure water to distill his first bottle of Tennessee Whisky in Cascade Hollow as well as many unique techniques when producing his premium whisky. Today, George Dickel Tennessee Whisky is still handcrafted with the same quality and attention to detail that ensures that each drop of George Dickel is as remarkable now as it was when the first batch was made.
George A. Dickel discovered that whisky made during the winter was smoother than whisky made in the summer. So, George Dickel is the only Tennessee whisky to chill the whisky before it goes into the charcoal mellowing vats. This filters out the oils and fatty
acids inherent in most whisky products.
Then as it is now, Cascade Hollow is a place where time isn?t measured in hours, days or months, but in years. Where patience is not only a virtue, but an essential ingredient in making the finest Tennessee Whisky.
In fact, it is so smooth, George Dickel declared that because his whisky was as smooth as the finest scotch, he would always spell the ?whiskey? in George Dickel Tennessee Whisky without an ?e?, keeping with the Scotch whisky tradition.
Come tour the distillery and discover George Dickel?s award winning* whisky and its time honored traditions. The Visitor?s Center is filled with antiques, photos and special memories, and the George Dickel General Store is a wonderful place to visit and drop a line to family or friends at our very own U.S. Post Office ? the only working post office at any distillery in the United States. If you prefer, you can rock on our porch and enjoy the abundant nature that picturesque Cascade Hollow has to offer.
