In 1865, J. W. Kelly decided to settle in Chattanooga, Tennessee with the desire and goal to create the finest whisky. One year later, he founded J. W. Kelly & Co. His brand set the standard of excellence and was prosperous until 1915, when Prohibition halted production and sales.
Now, more than 100 years later, his dream lives on through us as a "world class spirit with Chattanooga soul."
Golden Age Straight Rye Whiskey has an exciting mash of rye, malted barley, and malted rye. It has a nose of sweet orchard fruits and rye spices, as well as tasting notes that start out lightly sweet, turn to crusty bread, and finish with a bit of white pepper.
