Nashville, Tennessee (PRWEB) December 13, 2012
Prichard’s Distillery is pleased to announce plans to open a 2nd distillery in the spring of 2013 at the historic Fontanel in Nashville, Tennessee. The Fontanel is a 136 acre country music landmark formerly owned by Country Music Hall of Fame member Barbara Mandrell. The gem of the property is the Fontanel Mansion built by Mandrell and her husband Ken Dudney. This 27,000 square feet log home is filled with history that you don’t just see but get to experience. Guests will be welcome to touch, see, feel and relax in this magnificent home. The property also features the Woods Amphitheater, Studio Gallery, Fontanella Restaurant, Silo Gift Shop, The Trails, and opening in spring of 2013, the “Southern Living Idea Home”.
Everyone involved is excited about bringing Benjamin Prichard’s small batch techniques to the Fontanel. Co-owner of the Fontanel, Marc Oswald recently stated "I fully understood upon sampling Prichard's fine line of distilled spirits why they have received so many awards, published reviews and even accolades from their competitors." We have long wanted to partner with a craft distillery here at Fontanel, and until meeting the Prichard team, just could not find partners who would fit in with our historical area. We are beyond delighted with what the future holds for our two companies and the co-promotional opportunities the partnership represents."
Phil Prichard was equally enthusiastic about the partnership stating “This expansion of operations of Prichard’s Distillery promises to be economically beneficial to the company, for the Fontanel and to the Nashville area. We look forward to seeing all of our old friends at the Fontanel Mansion, and introducing lots of new friends to our fine line of hand crafted distilled spirits.”
Prichard’s Distillery has been producing awarding winning handcrafted spirits since 1997. We began our product line by handcrafting a few rum products before expanding to include flavored rums, whiskeys and our wildly popular Sweet Lucy Bourbon Liqueur. We've recently added several new and innovative products that include our Double Chocolate Bourbon and our white corn whiskey called Lincoln County Lightning.
Prichard’s starts with nothing but the best all-natural ingredients and distills our spirits in small batches giving them a quality unachievable with larger batched production. Most of our whiskeys are distilled in smaller charred white oak casks to impart even more flavor. Using these original pot still techniques, we've been able to accurately represent the spirits distilled long ago. This has been the secret to our success. Located in Kelso, Tennessee, our micro distillery produces a wide variety of whiskeys, bourbons, rums and liqueurs. Our current distribution includes 48 states and 8 European countries.
