Your bottle of Wathen's Kentucky Bourbon is a product of distilling expertise that goes back to the very beginning of bourbon whiskey
Charles W. Medley and his son Samuel Wathen Medley continue this proud eight generation, 250 year tradition.
Wathen's Kentucky Bourbon is a premium Kentucky Bourbon created by Charles W. Medley using the same recipe and techniques that have been handed directly and unchanged through eight generations of the Wathen and Medley families. The two families combined their unwavering commitment to quality with the conditions and ingredients of the region to produce Kentucky's finest straight bourbon whiskey.
Pristine water, naturally filtered through Kentucky's underground limestone deposits, is used exclusively in the 100% copper doubling process. This finest cereal grains - corn, rye, and malted barley - are selected, milled, and proportioned to exacting standards to produce a mash that awaits the magic of the fermentation process. The Medley family yeast, a zealously guarded secret handed down through eight generations, is then added to the mash. After double distilling, the whiskey is then stored in the finest charred new white oak barrels and allowed to age unhurried to its peak of flavor. Time honored tradition, hands-on expertise, and old-fashioned know-how are the final ingredients.
The result is Wathen's Kentucky Bourbon. A rich tawny caramel color, this mellow premium straight Bourbon whiskey is the essence of smoothness.
Taste it and we think you will agree Wathen's Kentucky Bourbon is the proudest achievement of bourbon whiskey's royal family.
