When Thomas Medley passed away in 1940, his son R. Wathen Medley took over the family distillery, enlisting his four brothers in the process and creating a slew of highly regarded bourbon brands.

Wathen himself is widely credited as the originator of the “Single Barrel Bourbon” concept; it’s said he would cherry-pick special barrels to keep in secret at his house, serving directly from them at dinner parties and get-togethers, where many of Kentucky’s iconic distilling families would be gathered. Years later, the family created Wathen’s “Single Barrel” Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey as a tribute in his name.

Chosen blind by the family, from barrels aged between 6 and 9 years, the distinctive Medley mash bill of high-corn, high-barley, and low-rye packs rich baking spice, maturity and complexity, and a clean,dry finish into every glass; 250 years of bourbon-making tradition can be tasted in every bottle. This single barrel bourbon clocks in at 47% ABV, making it dangerously easy to mix with and just as tempting to sip straight.
