Kentucky Owl Bourbon was founded in 1879 by C.M. Dedman on the banks of the Kentucky River. The distillery produced “The Wise Man’s Bourbon” for decades until its long and storied history was interrupted by Prohibition. Fortunately, the Kentucky Owl brand was relaunched with Batch #1 in 2014. Each Bourbon batch is made from some of the finest bourbon in bottled at 118.8 Proof to bring out the most desirable bourbon flavor. Every new batch is an original with its own unique taste profile, carefully crafted Kentucky and by Master Blender John Rhea. These highly sought after, artfully blended, craft bourbons have become an instant sensation and every batch sells out almost solely by word of mouth.
Kentucky Owl® Confiscated pays tribute to the barrels the government, just ahead of Prohibition. Those barrels were never seen or tasted again. At 96.4% proof it is a much more full-flavored and fuller-bodied bourbon that will stand up neat, on the rocks or in a cocktail.
