Blade and Bow

Blade and Bow is a brand of bourbon whiskey that pays homage to the art of whiskey making and the history of the Stitzel-Weller Distillery in Louisville, Kentucky. This distillery, opened on Derby Day in 1935, has a storied past and is known for its role in shaping the American bourbon industry. Blade and Bow whiskey, introduced by Diageo, the spirits conglomerate, takes its name from the two parts of a skeleton key – the blade shaft and the bow handle – symbolizing the keys to the distillery.

The bourbon is notable for incorporating some of the oldest stocks of whiskey from the Stitzel-Weller inventory, which adds a layer of historical significance and depth to its flavor profile. Blade and Bow offers a couple of key expressions: the standard Blade and Bow Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, which is known for its smooth, balanced character with hints of dried fruit, vanilla, and a touch of oak; and the Blade and Bow 22-Year-Old Limited Release, which is highly sought after for its more complex and nuanced profile.

Blade and Bow also utilizes a unique Solera aging process for its standard offering, where mature whiskey is blended with other whiskeys at different stages of maturation. This technique, more commonly used in wine production, ensures consistency and complexity in the bourbon's flavor. The combination of historical ties, unique aging processes, and quality product has positioned Blade and Bow as a distinctive brand within the premium bourbon category.
