"The Atlanta Braves have been such an integral part of Georgia history for over  50 years,” said Chasteen in a prepared statement. “The state has likewise been home to a rich tradition in whiskey-making that we've been excited to help revive. Bringing these two traditions together is like a dream come true for us. The Braves Development Company has been an absolute joy to work with, and we are beyond thrilled about this partnership."
