What is the exact definition of “Tennessee Whiskey”, anyway? For an alcohol to qualify as Tennessee Whiskey, it must be fermented in the state from mash of 51 percent corn, aged in brand-new charred oak barrels, filtered through maple charcoal and bottled at over 80 proof. That’s how Jack Daniel’s make their whiskey, which is why they’re allowed to call it that. But that could change if lawmakers in Tennessee get their way.
