THL: What is it?
Phil Prichard found the secrets to crafting his perfect whiskey when looking through his great-grandfather's old whiskey-making notes. To sweeten Benjamin Prichard's Tennessee Whiskey he uses white instead of yellow corn.
THL: Why should you try it?
The Prichard family had been distilling hooch for generations before Prohibition forced them to shut down their distillery. Benjamin Prichard's great-grandson, Phil Prichard, was determined to reinstate the family tradition and started by reading his grandfather’s notes. One of the secrets was a process that allowed him to bottle his whiskey with less water. The second secret was a now common process of charring the oak whiskey casks before barreling. Phil Prichard celebrated Prichard’s Distillery’s 10 years of operation with the release of Benjamin Prichard’s Tennessee Whiskey. He ages this whiskey for 10 years and uses a combination of charred oak casks and rum casks to impart a smoky sweet depth.
THL: Who makes it?
Prichard's was the first distillery in the state of Tennessee since Prohibition. They make a lineup of whiskeys based on traditional recipes, as well as a line of flavored rums.

THL: How should you drink it?
