George Dickel has launched the Cascade Moon Whisky series. The new line of highly limited Whiskies pay homage to the iconic Tennessee distillery’s 150 years of history, while also pointing towards a bright new future.
Inspired by Cascade Hollow’s original Cascade Pure Whisky that used the tagline “mellow as moonlight,” the new spirit strikes a balance between the traditional and contemporary. The first release from the lineup, Cascade Moon Edition No. 1, brings the best of Cascade Hollow to market, with General Manager and Distiller Nicole Austin creating a specialized Whisky that is inspired by, and features, similar tasting notes to those found in a gose-style beer.
Each release in the Cascade Moon Whisky series will differ based on what Austin’s current inspirations are and offer drinkers a unique tasting experience. Cascade Moon Edition No. 1 is an 11-year-old whisky that offers savory pretzel-like notes, along with bright and fruity notes of raspberry, pineapple, and coconut. At 42% ABV.
“Over the past few years, I’ve loved blending for George Dickel Tennessee Whisky, creating innovations that respect the heritage and history of Tennessee Whisky. In that process, I’ve found some incredible whiskies we’ve produced at Cascade Hollow that wouldn’t necessarily fit within the George Dickel portfolio,” said Austin. “With the release of Cascade Moon, I’m excited to have found a way to showcase these amazing whiskies and be able to showcase our depth as a distillery, outside of George Dickel and the traditional Tennessee Whisky category.”
The initial launch of Cascade Moon includes two variants that will be released over the next year. Beginning this fall, Cascade Moon Edition No. 1 will be regionally available in Tennessee, California and Texas for a limited time at athe price of $89.99. Consumers can also expect a second release from the series coming later this fall.
