1870: the beginning
Learning from our heritage
Born 40 years after the signing of the Declaration of Independence, George A. Dickel was an
established Nashville merchant when he entered the whisky business. Dickel grew his reputation for
selling the smoothest, most mellow spirits in the region.
Thus, Geo. A. Dickel & Co. was born and when the Cascade Hollow Distillery opened in 1878 in neighboring Coffee County, George Dickel bought a large share.
a new perspective on american tradition
whisky without the ‘e’
Since the very beginning, our unique spelling of ‘whisky’ without the ‘e’ speaks to the passion from which our brand was born. A drive to rethink American whiskey and elevate the experience to rival the world’s finest scotch whiskies. To this day, we continue the tradition of bringing new perspectives to our liquid legacy.
