After Strong Launch in Middle Tennessee, O.H. Ingram River Aged Announces Move to East Tennessee Markets, Including Chattanooga, Knoxville and Tri-Cities

Brown Water Spirits LLC, the maker of the O.H. Ingram River Aged Series, announced today that after a strong launch in Middle Tennessee, it is moving into East Tennessee, including, but not limited to, the Chattanooga, Knoxville and the Tri-Cities markets.

The first of the Ingram River Aged Series, O.H. Ingram River Aged Straight Whiskey, hit shelves in early October. The next in the series, a Straight Rye, will be available in November.

O.H. Ingram River Aged is the only whiskey aged inside a first-of-its-kind floating rickhouse moored on the riverbank in Ballard County, KY. Here, it’s exposed to the climate of the Mississippi River and its drastic rise and fall to provoke a unique interaction between wood and spirit. The constant motion of the river ensures that the whiskey never stops working, creating an extraordinary spirit with a taste mature beyond its years.

All whiskeys are products of their environment, but only O.H. Ingram River Aged is ‘mellowed on the Mississippi.’

“It’s been wonderful to see the reaction from whiskey lovers since hitting the market,” said proprietor Hank Ingram. “Our process of aging our whiskey from start to finish on the river makes us unique. It’s a new wave of whiskey that you can taste in every bottle – and customers are responding to it. We’ve worked hard to create what I believe is a truly outstanding product, and I can’t wait for folks in East Tennessee to experience it.”

Hank is the latest in his family to bring a great idea to the river’s edge. Seventy five years ago, his greatgrandfather moved the family to Nashville and began its American success story with two things – barges and a rushing river. Now, Hank is adding his chapter to this story by bringing together whiskey and the magic of the river to create O.H. Ingram River Aged Whiskey.
