First Expression: Modern Expression

 

 

ModExp_LowRes_HeroCumberland Cask Modern Expression is distilled and aged in Tennessee, and bottled in Nashville.

 

Our Whiskey is a small batch blend of 6.5 year old and 8.5 year old whiskeys. Unlike other Tennessee Whiskeys, ours is never chill filtered. The mash-bill is a high corn mash with 70 percent corn, 25 percent rye, and 5 percent barley. The high percentage of corn gives our whiskey a sweet initial taste followed by the bold flavor of rye, and finishing with some smoke from the barley.

 

 

Modern Expression is filtered and blended to perfection, this whiskey is easy to sip or mix into a classic cocktail.

Third Expression: Ruby Cut

Cumberland Cask Ruby Cut is the first and only port wine finished Tennessee Whiskey to ever be produced. The whiskey has a dark amber hue and is bottled under our red label at 90 proof.

 

We placed our 6 year old Tennessee whiskey into 4 fresh ruby port wine barrels from California. We let it age in these barrels for a full Nashville winter to allow the whiskey to contract and squeeze all the port wine in the wood out into the whiskey. This gave the whiskey a deep amber color and some sweetness of the port. After it aged to a full maturity of 6 months, we dumped the barrels and placed the whiskey into stainless tanks to allow it to mellow.

 

Refilling the same 4 barrels with a new batch of 6 year old whiskey, the whiskey rested for a whole Nashville summer. The summer heat caused the whiskey to expand deep into the wood, picking up the vanilla and wood characteristics of the barrel. Once batch two reached a full maturity of 6 months, we dumped the barrels and placed the whiskey into stainless tanks to allow it to mellow.

 

We were planning to bottle the batches separately, but something amazing happened. When the two batches were blended together, a marriage of sorts, a spark went off. The two different batches complemented each other in a perfect way, so we blended the two together and Ruby Cut was born.

 

Cumberland Cask Ruby Cut is a limited run of 375 six pack cases only available in middle Tn. We hope you enjoy drinking it as much as we do. Let’s raise our glasses to a true Tennessee Whiskey first…
