Chattanooga Whiskey has been working on the development of the Tennessee Stillhouse, designed by architect Thomas Palmer, and is planning an opening next spring, officials said. 

The four-story "experience" will be complete with custom distilling equipment from Vendome Copper and Brass Works.  Last week Chattanooga Whiskey placed the order for the first legal distilling equipment in over 100 years. The equipment includes four 2,700-gallon fermentation tanks and a continuous still made from copper that will stand 30 feet tall and 12 inches in diameter.  Demolition and construction will start soon.

Jon Lawrence joined Chattanooga Whiskey in February and he has been working on spreading the word about Chattanooga Whiskey all across the Southeast, officials said.

Officials stated, "When the Vote Whiskey campaign was launched in 2012, the main goal was to change the 100-year-old distillery prohibition law. Now the spirit of Vote Whiskey is more than voting to change the law, or even drinking Chattanooga Whiskey, it is about bringing a community together and creating change for the greater good.".
