Release 8, Tennessee Foundation
Release 8, Batch 8
In late 2019 and early 2020, Four Gate Whiskey Company released two unfinished Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey batches, dubbed “Foundation.” Due to the extremely limited amount of whiskey available, only a handful of those bottles made it to our second major market in Tennessee – or outside of Kentucky at all. To make up for that, the company is releasing a micro-batch of Tennessee Straight Bourbon Whiskey available in ALL of Four Gate’s markets. The batch is called “Tennessee Foundation.”
We selected and blended five barrels of 10-year-old Tennessee Straight Bourbon with a mash bill of 84% corn, 8% rye, and 8% malted barley.
