Tennessee and the Appalachian Region have a rich history coal mining. These hard working and courageous miners helped establish the state and its modern economy. The smaller, less regarded hero of the times was the Canary who was employed to identify dangerous gas leaks inside the mines, therefore saving countless lives. As a proud Tennessee brand, we honor our history while paying just tribute to our feathered friends whose contributions cannot be overstated. Yellow Bird Tennessee Whiskey is traditional Tennessee Sour Mash Whiskey. A percentage of the proceeds from each bottle sale of Yellow Bird Tennessee Whiskey will be donated to the National Audubon Society to help fund initiatives that support our feathered friends in their natural habitats.
