Weller 8 Year Old C.Y.P.B.
The whisky in this bottle is a result of an online consensus where whisky drinker were asked to submit their preferred bourbon recipe, proof, warehouse location and age. the results were unanimously in favour of a wheated bourbon aged on the highest warehouse floors for 8 years and bottled at 95 proof.
The Weller brand was historically produced by the Van Winkle family at Stitzel-Weller distillery. When Julian Van Winkle II was forced to sell the distillery in 1972, it eventually passed into the hands of DCL in 1984, who's subsequent iteration, United Distillers initially invested heavily in bourbon. So much so in fact that production capacity at Stitzel-Weller actually quadrupled in its final years, but the opening of the newly refurbished Bernheim in 1992 saw the smaller of the two Louisville distilleries closed down. When United Distillers became Diageo in 1997, the new parent company had less interest in bourbon, and sold the Weller brand and a significant stock of Stitzel-Weller bourbon to the Sazerac company, who now produce it to this day at their Buffalo Trace distillery.
