A flavor rockstar… a Bourbon bomb… a perfect dram.

The name "Weller" has been around the horn a few times. It all started with the Stitzel-Weller Distilling Company — founded in 1935 and closed in 1972 during the famous "Whiskey Recession." The had a bunch of great brands when they closed, and the formulas and brands were sold off. Today, the W. L. Weller brand is owned by Sazerac out of New Orleans and the Bourbons are distilled at their famous Buffalo Trace Distillery along with a wide array of Sazerac products.

We like our Whiskey strong. The vast majority of the Spirits in the US are bottled at 40% ABV — and that’s fine. We think that 46% is better. Once you get over 50% ABV you enter the "near cask strength" territory where you are making some rock’in craft cocktails. Weller Full Proof is just what the name implies — that famous wheated Bourbon bottled at its full, natural cask strength of 57% ABV without chill filtration. That means you get all of the aromatic esters and essential oils, and it’s powerful enough to stand up to ice like a rock star. The "normal" Weller wheated Bourbon is good… Weller Full Proof is a flavor explosion.

Appearance / Color
Warm Amber

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aromas are powerful and complex — you get everything from stone fruits to leather and baking spices with plenty of oak.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
If you can take it neat — and many men cannot — the mouth waters with intense notes of english toffee and apricot with a rich mouth feel. With ice, the flavors open up in delectable waves of pecan praline and dark chocolate.

Finish
The finish is long and lingering — making a full glass a seamless and continual experience from first sip to the last.

Sure, Kentucky gets all the press when it comes to Bourbon. And with good reason—nearly 95% of it is produced there. But Bourbon can be made anywhere as long as it's within the United States. Just ask states with budding distilleries like Illinois and New York.
Bourbon Is a ''new barrel Spirit'': One of the legal requirements for Bourbon is that it only be aged in brand new oak charred barrels.
"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 are very high in 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.
Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
