The Fugitives Spirits


Nascent Whiskey

made with organic & heirloom
Tennessee grains

MANIFESTO TENNESSEE NASCENT WHISKEY is the spirit at the birth of a new approach to Tennessee Whiskey. 

MANIFESTO is our organic grain number 1 copper-pot distilled whiskey mash filtered through our own Tennessee Sugar Maple charcoal from the Massey Farm in Lincoln County, and then bottled for you prior to barreling and aging. Like many other prized, unaged spirits from around the world, MANIFESTO offers a fresh taste of the local terroir with an additional mellow hint of caramel and smoke from our Lincoln County Process that defines all Tennessee Whiskey. We are very excited to offer this unique and limited production whiskey honoring the essence and heritage of Tennessee craft.


made with
Tennessee heirloom corn

GRANDGOUSIER TENNESSEE WHISKEY is a true taste of Tennessee terroir – an exceptional, unique, and rare small batch whiskey.

GRANDGOUSIER starts with local, sustainably grown heirloom “Hickory Cane” corn, one of the oldest varieties grown in the South, revered by the Native Americans and original settlers for its abundant flavor and hardiness. We mash, ferment, and copper pot distill our heirloom corn with the finest malted barley in small batches, then filter it through our own handmade Tennessee Sugar Maple charcoal, a method known as “The Lincoln County Process” that defines Tennessee Whiskey. This step adds a mellow hint of caramel and a touch of smoke before we place the whiskey into our custom charred oak barrels, where over time hints of biscuit, corn, and caramel apple join the profile.

GRANDGOUSIER was reviewed in the May 2017 edition of TASTING PANEL magazine, receiving and “Exceptional” 93 score (Gold).

distilled from bourbon mash & made with sustainably grown Tennessee grains

TENNESSEE WALTZ WHISKEY™ is a bold and exhilarating dance of Tennessee flavors that conveys a new and exciting approach to American whiskey, celebrating the local land, grain & spirit.

TENNESSEE WALTZ WHISKEY™ invites you to dance to the melody created by our blend of two whiskeys distilled in Tennessee from bourbon mash. We have perfected a well-balanced expression of true Tennessee spirit in our whiskey that hints of fig and chocolate along with the high note of sweet caramel.  We small-batch distill our local organic corn and rye to set the tone for this limited release, then pair it with a partner whiskey from just down the road.
