DAVIDSON RESERVE GENESIS is One of the Only Nashville Distilled Six-Year-Old Tennessee Bourbon Whiskeys Since Prohibition

The Anniversary and Release Takes Place in a Modified Celebration on Saturday, October 17, 2020

Pennington Distilling Company, an award-winning spirits distillery, celebrates is fourth annual Davidson Reserve “Hardest Harvest” and releases two new Davidson Reserve Tennessee Bourbon Whiskey expressions on Saturday, October 17, 2020. This special date, October 17, marks the anniversary of the laying of Pennington Distilling Company’s first barrel of whiskey down to age. Each year on the anniversary of this special date, the distillery releases various whiskey expressions.   The first whiskey is a special release of Davidson Reserve Bourbon which is the first Pennington Distilling Company's small-batch expression of its wheated bourbon and is a blend of 5 and 6-year-old bourbons.  The second expression is their annual release of Davidson Reserve Genesis. The 2020 Genesis is aged 6 years and is “Bottled in Bond”. This long-awaited Pennington Distilling Company's high rye is one of Nashville’s first locally distilled six-year-old Tennessee bourbons since Prohibition. Both products are products 100% locally distilled. Jeff and Jenny Pennington, co-founders of Davidson Reserve, state “We are very excited about the release of our Davidson Reserve Genesis.  We feel that this 6-year-old whiskey is our best yet.  We look forward to sharing this special spirit with our customers.” In light, or in spite of, the pandemic, Pennington Distilling Company will celebrate some of the good parts of 2020 and for them, that is “Hardest Harvest”.  However, due to COVID-19 restrictions, the distillery will host a drive-through celebration.  This modified process will still celebrate and offer our valued customers the opportunity to purchase our limited releases before they hit the local retailers' shelves.
