Ep 67 A scenario in which a Tennessee Whiskey isn't a bourbon, with Chris Fletcher

On our second stop in Nashville we sit down with Chris Fletcher, Assistant Master distiller at Jack Daniels and discuss the scenario in which a Tennessee Whiskey does NOT qualify as a bourbon.

This is NOT another discussion about Jack Daniels being a bourbon or not but more so the history behind the brand as well as a Tennessee State law that overlooks additives.
