Kentucky Owl was founded by Charles Mortimer Dedman, a local pharmacist, in 1879. After marrying his wife, Dedman was given a large parcel of land on the banks of the Kentucky River, as a wedding gift from his adopted father who was a local town judge. C.M. Dedman Distillery was established here on the banks of the Kentucky River, producing "The Wise Man's Bourbon" under Distilled Spirits Plant Designation “No. 16,” one of Kentucky’s original distilleries and part of a booming industry. Kentucky Owl achieved much success and production continued until Prohibition halted distillation. The family-run facility was no match for the “forces of teetotalism, temperance and eventually, the Feds” (producer). In 1916, Prohibition left several local distilleries with ample reserves of bourbon. As for Kentucky Owl, approximately 250,000 gallons of bourbon were left over in various stages of aging. Today these reserves would be worth about $40 million in inventory. After Federal agents descended on the Dedman’s distillery, the bourbon was seized and shipped up the river by barge to the state capital in Frankfort for “safekeeping” in a warehouse. Bottled at a lower ABV than its predecessor, this highly anticipated second batch of Kentucky Owl Straight Rye is aged 11 years. Expect delicious notes of fresh baked warm cinnamon rolls on the nose followed by honey and cinnamon. The palate is sweet with strawberry jam, and further cinnamon notes mixed with brown sugar, followed by a honeyed finish. Pick up your bottle today!
