In the picturesque hills of Cascade Hollow, we create a whisky that's as extraordinary as the place it comes from. Our story traces back to George A. Dickel, a Nashville merchant who stepped into the whisky business four decades after America declared its independence. He quickly gained acclaim for delivering the region's smoothest and most mellow spirits. When Cascade Hollow Distillery opened its doors in 1878 in nearby Coffee County, George Dickel didn't hesitate to invest, and Geo. A. Dickel & Co. came to life.

Our methods are rooted in tradition, including our unique winter distilling process. George Dickel believed that whisky crafted during colder months resulted in a smoother product. Following this principle, we chill our liquids to 40 degrees before they undergo charcoal filtering, achieving a complexity that tantalizes the palate. This distinct approach also influenced our spelling of 'whisky'—intentionally without the 'e'—a nod to our ambition to produce an American spirit that could rival the finest scotch whiskies.

Fast-forward to the modern era, and we're led by General Manager and Distiller, Nicole Austin. Since joining the team in 2018, Nicole has been a driving force behind the brand's latest innovations. Among her achievements is the George Dickel Bottled in Bond Distilling Season Fall 2005, which was named "Whisky of the Year" by Whisky Advocate in 2019. Her leadership has earned her the title of Artisan Spirit Magazine's first-ever "Distiller of the Year" in 2020 and the "Distillery Manager" award from Icons of Whisky Awards in 2021.

Under Nicole's guidance, the brand has expanded its offerings. Alongside the George Dickel Bottled in Bond Series, she introduced the award-winning Dickel Bourbon, the George Dickel x Leopold Bros Collaboration Rye Blend, and the Cascade Moon Whisky series.

We're not just part of the Tennessee Whiskey Trail, a network of over 25 distilleries across the state; we're part of a rich history and an evolving narrative. When you step into Cascade Hollow, you're not just tasting whisky; you're immersing yourself in an enduring legacy of craftsmanship and innovation.
