Hand Crafted In Traditional Pot Stills
hen you taste Prichard’s Fine Rum or our premium whiskey, you’ll immediately be able to distinguish our product from the large batch, mass produced products that line the store shelves. Prichard’s Distillery hand crafts their American distilled spirits in small batches. Our quality rums and whiskeys are distilled in copper pots and stored in 15 gallon white oak barrels to allow for the best possible flavor.
Crafting our Tennessee whiskey and rum products is a hands-on process that is a delicate mix of science and art. There are many benefits to artisan distilling in small batches. We craft our spirits in small batches so we have complete control over each and every bottle of Prichard's that leaves our distillery. Fermentation, distilling, aging, blending and bottling are all completed under the direct supervision of a master distiller. This type of oversight can only be maintained in small batches. It allows us to deliver the perfect flavors for our whiskeys and rums.
Our fine spirits are an accurate recreation of America’s first distilled beverages. Our rums are made from sweet American molasses from the plantations of Louisiana and our whiskeys are not unlike those produced by Benjamin Prichard in Davidson County, Tennessee way back in the early 1800’s. Distilled in traditional copper pot stills using the techniques of the master distillers from a time long ago, Prichard’s American Spirits are most certainly nothing like the commercially produced spirits we have come to know today.
At Prichard’s we love what we do and we believe it shows in our product. While we have added a few new flavors, our rums and whiskeys are distilled using techniques and recipes that have been in our family for hundreds of years. Our hopes are that you will give Prichard’s Fine Rum or Tennessee Whiskey a try and see for yourself. Our distillery is located in Kelso, Tennessee in an old schoolhouse where the basketball hoops still hang on the wall. If you’re ever in the neighborhood, drop by and see us.
