Kentucky Straight
Bourbon Whiskey


A proud tribute to the renowned craftsmanship
of the legendary Stitzel-Weller Distillery

our whiskies BLADE AND BOW KENTUCKY STRAIGHT BOURBON WHISKEY

A homage to the legendary Stitzel-Weller distillery, Blade and Bow Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey uses a unique Solera System aging process to preserve some of the distillery’s oldest whiskey stocks, including some of the last bourbon produced there before it closed in 1992.

The solera liquid is mingled with other fine whiskies aged and bottled at Stitzel-Weller. Aged in new charred American white oak barrels, this bourbon has a subtle aroma of fresh fruit and a taste that includes hints of dried apricot, ripe pear and a sweet roasted grain. The finish has notes of charred oak and warm winter spices.

Blade and Bow Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey received a GOLD MEDAL at the 2015 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

Collect the five distinct keys - some rarer than others - that adorn every bottle.

Our Whiskies BLADE AND BOW
22-year-Old
Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Limited Release

The award-winning Blade and Bow 22-Year-Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is a limited-release whiskey inspired by the passion and craftsmanship of the legendary Stitzel-Weller distillery.

Inclusive of whiskies distilled at both the distillery historically located at 17th and Breckinridge in Louisville, Ky. and the distillery historically located at 1001 Wilkinson Blvd. in Frankfort, Ky., this limited release offering was most recently aged and bottled at Stitzel-Weller.

Smooth and smoky, this limited-release bourbon’s taste is accented with notes of torched sugar and apples baked in honey and spices. Its aroma is one of toasted oak mixed with vanilla bean, fig and just a touch of caramel.

Blade and Bow 22-Year-Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey was named the “Best Straight Bourbon” and received the DOUBLE GOLD MEDAL at the 2015 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

theSolera System

The solera aging system used to create Blade and Bow Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is comprised of five levels that include original Stitzel-Weller whiskeys.
The solera liquid is moved from one level to the next each year. Upon completion of the fifth level, the liquid is then removed and hand-bottled at the Stitzel-Weller Distillery in Louisville, Kentucky.
