About Brother’s Bond Straight Bourbon Whiskey
The four grains (65% corn, 22% rye, wheat, and barley) are sourced from American farms and crushed using a hammer mill. The grains are then cooked with limestone-filtered glacier water from an aquifer that helps with neutralizing acidity in the sour mash. After the mash is cooled, it’s time for 3 days of fermentation using a proprietary yeast strain.
The distillation then takes place in a copper column still, after which the white dog whiskey enters American white oak barrels at 120 proof. The #4 char barrel staves and #2 char barrel heads ensure that the bourbon slowly achieves the desired profile. Finally, it’s blended into the smooth, complex, and balanced high-rye straight bourbon that is bottled at 80 proof.

About Brother’s Bond
Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley weren’t just co-stars in the hit TV show The Vampire Diaries. They are best friends in real life, sharing a passion for bourbon. Brother’s Bond is a story 10 years in the making that resulted in the Brother’s Bond Straight Bourbon being released in 2021. Having taken a hands-on approach, it really is the result of a long friendship: everything from the mash and the taste profile down to the label is the pair’s work. A good cause is involved as well, as 1% of the sales goes towards supporting renewable farming practices.
There are not many things more American than bourbon, and although most of it is produced in Kentucky, it can be produced all over the USA.
It must be made with at least 51% corn and bottled at 40% ABV or higher. So why not give this American classic a try?
