The original rebellious, Wheated Bourbon now louder and more fun.

The story goes that Billy Idol was doing shots with the Rolling Stones at a party. Keith Richards just loved him some hard liquor and he was fond of Rebel Yell — the brand that Rebel Bourbon was sold under at the time. Billy liked the name Rebel Yell and asked the gents if he could borrow it for a song. You know, the one where Billy is asking for more, more, more. If you are a music fan like we are, that’s reason enough to buy it right there.

The original Rebel Bourbon Whiskey was made by the W. L. Weller & Sons Company. And though that distillery popped into existence in 1849, it wasn’t until the mid-1900s that they started bottling American Whiskeys under the Rebel Yell brand. Anyway, the name was passed around from company to company for a bit, garnering awards left and right, their Wheated Bourbon proving a hit. Since the early 1980s, the label has been lovingly tended to by American Whiskey-lover David Sherman’s beverage company, Luxco, and today, it's known as Rebel Bourbon. Despite the name change, the rebellious spirit is the same.

Rebel Bourbon started life as a wheated Bourbon, and their core Bourbons still are today. The mash bill follows one of Heaven Hill’s recipes at 68% corn, 20% wheat, and 12% malted barley. It’s aged in medium #3 char casks at 125 proof. But where the original Bourbon is bottled at 40% ABV, Rebel 100 Proof Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is bottled at 50% ABV for the perfect combo of heat and smoothness. The extra power puts the "Yell" back into the bottle in all the best ways.

"Remember that iconic poster from World War II showing Rosie the Riveter as a patriotic American woman doing her part for the war effort? Well, hundreds of businesses did their part too, and the Bourbon distillers stepped right up with ‘em.

Distilleries all over Kentucky and Tennessee were re-tooled to distill fuel alcohol and ferment penicillin cultures to treat wounded soldiers."
Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.

Bourbon only needs to be placed in a new oak container for a few seconds to be called Bourbon. Fresh from the still and unaged Bourbon is called a White Dog. Recently, many of the larger distillers have started packaging this harsh, clear grain spirit for sale.
