The Stitzel-Weller Distillery in Louisville, Kentucky, is launching a new premium whiskey, Blade and Bow, with two offerings – Blade and Bow Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey and Blade and Bow 22-year-old limited release Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey.
Named after the two parts of a skeleton key, Blade and Bow is a tribute to the five keys of crafting bourbon made famous at Stitzel-Weller. Those keys included grains, yeast, fermentation, distillation and aging.
Born from some of the oldest remaining whiskey stocks distilled at Stitzel-Weller before it ceased production in 1992, Blade and Bow Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey earned a Gold medal at the 2015 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. The whiskey is made using a solera aging system to preserve the original stocks. This solera liquid is then mingled with other fine whiskeys, aged and bottled at Stitzel-Weller. The 91-proof/45.5% ABV bourbon is priced at US$49.99 for a 750ml bottle.
Blade and Bow 22-year-old limited release Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey is comprised of whiskeys distilled at both the distillery historically located at 17th and Breckinridge in Louisville, and the distillery historically located in at 1001 Wilkinson Blvd. Frankfort, Ky. The limited release offering was most recently aged and bottled at Stitzel-Weller. This award-winning bourbon recently won Best Straight Bourbon and a Double Gold medal at the 2015 San Francisco Spirits Competition. The 91-proof/45.5% ABV bourbon is priced at US$149.99 for a 750ml bottle.
