George A. Dickel believed that whisky made during winter was smoother than that made in summer. So his Tennessee whisky is chilled before it goes into the charcoal mellowing vats. This filters out the oils and fatty acids inherent in most whisky products. Declaring his whisky the equal of the finest scotch, he kept with the Scotch whisky tradition by dropping the "e" in "whiskey."
George Dickel No. 1 is the foundation where all George Dickel’s handcrafted corn whiskies begin. Crafted in Tullahoma from the same mash bill as our No. 8, No. 12 and Barrel Select whiskies & finished with the signature Dickel “Chill Charcoal Mellowing” process, Our No.1 Foundation Recipe is the finest un-aged whisky around.
As George himself would have said it’s “Mellow as Moonlight.”
