About William Larue Weller 2019 Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

The 2019 release is an uncut and unfiltered wheated bourbon that was distilled in 2007 from Kentucky corn, North Dakota wheat, and North Dakota malted barley. It then spent 12 years and 6 months in its charred American oak casks on the 2nd and 3rd floors of warehouse I. Bottled at 128 proof in 2019, the bold and flavor-packed spirit won a Gold Medal at the Los Angeles International Spirits Competition.

About W.L. Weller

After serving in the Louisville Brigade during the Mexican-American war, William Larue Weller returned home to his native Kentucky. His family had helped settle Kentucky in the late 18th century, and his grandfather, Daniel Weller, purchased a distillery in Nelson County in 1800. (When Daniel Weller died, his estate was inventoried and was said to contain three whiskey barrels, two stills, one mash kettle, and numerous dry kegs.)

Upon his return to Kentucky following the war, W. L. Weller joined the family business and began working at his grandfather's distillery. Weller had a sharp palate and a keen sense for business and in 1849, he introduced the first bourbon ever that used wheat as its secondary grain instead of rye. Wheated bourbons (including Pappy Van Winkle and Larceny Bourbon, which eventually imitated W. L. Weller's mashbill) have a softer and more gentle flavor profile as compared to bourbons that use rye as their secondary grain and have a slightly sweeter taste. Weller's bourbon was incredibly popular in antebellum America and ultimately forced him to place a green thumbprint on his invoices and barrels as a certificate of authenticity.
