It’s Not Just Tennessee Whiskey, It’s Memphis Whiskey

Tennessee Whiskey

Old Dominick Tennessee Whiskey is not yet available, as we’re letting this spirit age until it’s just right.

Born of an immigrant’s passion in booming pre-prohibition Memphis, Old Dominick’s spirits and stories are still made to be shared. Whether neat or as the star of a favorite cocktail, choice grains and dedication to craft shine through in our Tennessee Whiskey. Starting with legendarily sweet artesian well water from hundreds of feet right below our downtown distillery, and patiently aged in white oak barrels of handpicked regional timber, our whiskeys are instilled with five generations of Domenico Canale’s old-fashioned values. It’s not just a Tennessee whiskey, it’s Memphis whiskey.

Why TN?

Back before the law stepped in to keep scalawags from ruining the good name of “Tennessee Whiskey,” Domenico Canale was already true to the spirit, dealing only in whiskeys produced with traditional charcoal filtering and white oak aging, which mellow the taste but never diluted the strength of the spirit.
