Why We Don't Filter
We do not filter any of our whiskeys for one reason, to retain as much depth of flavor and color imparted from the aging process. Most whiskeys are filtered to prevent clouding when the whiskey is bottled below 90 proof.
The clouding effect is called “flocking” and occurs when minerals precipitate out. Flocking does not affect the flavor, but filtering to prevent flocking does. Even at Cotton Hollow’s 93 proof, there is a chance it can become cloudy, especially if the whiskey is chilled.
So, if your bottle of Cotton Hollow appears a little cloudy, don’t worry, it will still taste great.
