Founded in the late 1800’s, this is one Kentucky bourbon that seems to have slipped off the whiskey radar for many. That probably has a lot to do with the fact that despite being America’s best selling bourbon in the 50’s, it was pulled from the shelves by Seagrams, only to reappear many years later. Meanwhile, the brand continued to flourish in Japan and Europe. Luckily in 2004 the new owners, one of Japan’s largest breweries, returned it to the US market. Welcome home!
