This offering from the historic Wathen-Medley family pays homage to the band of brothers in all of their bourbon-making glory. Medley Brothers is bottled at a cocktail friendly 102 proof with a vintage-styled label and a bottle shaped and priced for the well.
The Wathen-Medley family has been distilling premium bourbon for 8 generations, beginning more than 100 years before prohibition. Thomas Aquinas Medley first produced bourbon and sold it as a 30 day old spirit. Next came a 60 day bourbon, and so it went until reserves had been built and a suitably aged bourbon could be offered. Today, the company is run by the 7th and 8th generation Wathen-Medley boys, Sam and his father Charles. A low-rye mash bill is used to create this iconic Kentucky Straight Bourbon. The family recipe remains unaltered, its heritage triumphantly revived in every bottle.
Capturing a broad range in one category, American Whiskey refers to any spirit made in America by distilling a mash of fermented grains—typically corn, wheat, rye or barley. American Whiskey must be distilled to no more than 95% alcohol and bottled at 40% or higher. In order to be labeled a straight Whiskey, it also must be aged in white oak barrels for a minimum of two years and not contain any added colors or flavors.
