An 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. The Solera liquid is mingled with other fine whiskies aged and bottled at Stitzel-Weller then 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 features notes of charred oak and warm winter spices. Each bottle, adorned with one of five distinct keys, welcomes a new generation to the art of bourbon making. Simply mix with elderflower liqueur, simple syrup, club soda, orange slices and a brandied cherry for a refreshing tasting “New Fashioned” cocktail. Named after the two parts of a skeleton key, the blade shaft and the ornate bow, the Blade and Bow brand is a tribute to the five keys that once hung on the door of the Stitzel-Weller Distillery.
