The No. 12 is a high corn mash (84% corn, 8% rye, and 8% barley) Bourbon/Tennessee Whiskey produced by the Cascade Hollow Distillery of Cascade Hollow, Tennessee. The distillery was formerly named the George Dickel Distillery until it was changed in 2018.
Being a Tennessee Whiskey, George Dickel is put through the Lincoln County Process, where the new make spirit is filtered through sugar maple, charcoal before being put into barrels. Apparently, the Cascade Hollow distillery goes a step beyond just using this as a filtration/mellowing method and actually lets the new make steep for a period of time in the charcoal before running it through.
The George Dickel brand and Cascade Hollow Distillery are owned by Diageo, which is the largest spirits maker in the world, also owns the Bulleit and IW Harper brands of Bourbon, to name a few. Even the company would likely admit they are currently playing catchup in American Whiskey right now though, as it’s only Bourbon Distillery just recently started operations.
