A feud has erupted among distillers over a seemingly simple question: When is a whiskey "Tennessee Whiskey''?

On the one side is Brown-Forman Corp., maker of the top-selling American whiskey, Jack Daniel's, according to The Wall Street Journal.



At the company's urging, Tennessee passed legislation last year requiring anything labeled "Tennessee Whiskey'' not just to be made in the state, but also to be made from at least 51% corn, filtered through maple charcoal and aged in new, charred oak barrels.
