Made in Indiana: Chattanooga Whiskey

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -- Chattanooga Whiskey can't be distilled in Chattanooga.

The Chattanooga Times Free Press reported prohibition-era statutes prevent distilleries in Hamilton County, so the whiskey that bears the city's name is being made in Indiana.

An official of the Chattanooga Whiskey Company said if the company could distill locally, there would be more than a dozen new jobs and more than $150,000 in tax and tourism dollars paid annually.

Hamilton County was not included in 2009 enabling legislation that allows distilleries to open in 41 additional counties. Moore, Lincoln and Coffee counties were previously the only places where distilleries could operate in Tennessee.
