The Tennessee based Cascade Hollow Distilling Co, the home of George Dickel, has announced the launch of the first expression from a new whisky range.

Cascade Moon Edition No. 1 (42% ABV) was produced using a blend of 11 and 16 Year Old whiskies, with a mashbill of 84% corn, 8% rye and 8% malted barley.

The Cascade Moon range, which has been launched to pay homage to the distillery's history while setting the tone for the future of the whisky category, was inspired by Cascade Hollow's original Cascade Pure Whisky that used the tagline 'mellow as moonlight'.

Cascade Moon Edition No. 1, which has been produced using "incredible" stocks of whiskies, that wouldn't normally fit within the George Dickel portfolio, is said to deliver savoury pretzel-like notes, along with bright and fruity notes of raspberry, pineapple and coconut. 

Commenting on the launch, Nicole Austin, General Manager and Distiller at Cascade Hollow Distilling Co, said: "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. 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."

Cascade Moon Edition No. 1, will be available later this month in the US states of Tennessee, California and Texas, for a RRP of $89.99. Further releases will follow over the next year.
