Daviess County Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey


48% ABV, 750 ml

Bottled by Luxco, owner of Lux Row Distillers, this is a combination of two different mashbills: wheated bourbon and high-rye bourbon, both sourced from within Kentucky. Historically, Kentucky’s Daviess County was a center of bourbon distilling, and this brand revives the Daviess County Distilling Co.’s original label.

"Daviess County Distilling Company, with heritage dating back to 1874, was once a prominent distillery in Daviess County, which boasts a long history of distilled spirits and iconic distilleries that helped Kentucky earn its reputation as the home of great bourbons. It was acquired by the Medley Distilling Company in 1901, survived Prohibition, but ultimately the Daviess County brand was shuttered, apparently among others, by what would later be known as Diageo in 1992 when Medley itself was closed by its new owner.

The Daviess Country brand was acquired shortly thereafter by David Sherman Corporation in 1993, which in turn became Luxco when it was renamed in 2006. Now and again an old bottle of the Daviess Country whiskey pre-closure is rescued from a dusty retail shelf somewhere, but for the most part it was seemingly dormant for decades. That’s changed now, as Luxco, through its Lux Row Distillers operation, has restored it as a new “ultra-premium” family of bourbons.

The new Daviess County Kentucky Straight Bourbon line up, according to those behind it, consists of a mixed mash bill of both wheated and ryed bourbons for a balanced sweetness and spice. The three variants in this line are Daviess County Kentucky Straight Bourbon, Daviess County Kentucky Straight Bourbon – Cabernet Sauvignon Finish and Daviess County Kentucky Straight Bourbon – French Oak Finish." - The Whiskey Wash
