On today’s episode of A Tasting at The Murder Table, we’re sampling a quartet of award winning whiskeys from Nashville, Tennessee’s Pennington Distilling Company. Davidson Reserve is their name, and the four expressions that we’ll be sampling are as follows:
- Davidson Reserve Tennessee Straight Sour Mash Whiskey, Small Batch
- Davidson Reserve Tennessee Straight Bourbon Whiskey, Small Batch
- Davidson Reserve Four Grain Tennessee Straight Bourbon Whiskey
- Davidson Reserve Tennessee Straight Rye Whiskey
Here’s a bit more information about Davidson Reserve:
“Jeff and Jenny Pennington, co-founders of Pennington Distilling Company, state “Our Davidson Reserve Whiskies continue to resonate with all whiskey lovers across the U.S. We are very proud of our entire team that has worked hard to make Davidson Reserve known as an award-winning whiskey on a national stage.”
Davidson Reserve is the truest expression of what originally inspired the Pennington’s to open a distillery in Nashville. It’s the first locally distilled six-year-old Tennessee Whiskey since Prohibition and is a reflection of Tennessee’s heritage and history that connects us to a long (and storied) history of distilling alcohol in our home state.
Davidson Reserve joins the very small club of Tennessee distilleries that perform every function of the production process on-site. At our facility in West Nashville, we do everything except grow the grain, which is sourced locally from Renfroe Farms just up the road in Huntington, Tennessee. Davidson Reserve is one of the first distilleries in Tennessee to receive the sought-after “bottle-in-bond” designation since the laws were changed in 2009.
