In the hills and hollows around Lynchburg and Lincoln County, Tennessee, clear spring water and corn come together with sugar maple charcoal and charred white oak to make some of the world’s most famous whiskies. We recently visited the distilleries that make their home in Nashville or the nearby green rolling hills. The differences among these are dramatic, from the nonstop small-batch experimentation at Corsair Artisan, to the steady voluminous flow of whiskey over charcoal at Jack Daniel’s. What all these distilleries share is a passion for making something great in the state of Tennessee. Enjoy the trip:
