Taste
W.L. Weller Antique 107 Bourbon is a high-proof wheated bourbon bottled at 107. It is part of a highly coveted series of bourbons named after William Larue Weller, to commemorate his family's legacy. It is aged 6-8 years and is bottled at the award-winning Buffalo Trace Distillery. This splendid blend is crafted from a wheated mash bill, like other great blends such as Pappy Van Winkle, William Larue, and E.H.T Seasoned wood. It is a wheated mash of corn, malted barley, and wheat instead of rye. This bourbon is rich and complex with distinctive fragrant floral notes, mingled with sweet vanilla undertones. On the palate, you'll notice hints of sweet fruit notes, balanced with strong vanilla flavors. The finish is bold and spicy with profound cinnamon notes.

History
W.L. Weller Antique 107 Bourbon is an award-winning wheated bourbon that is bottled at 107 proof. It is part of a series of bourbons named to commemorate The Wellers. The Wellers immigrated from Germany to Maryland and established their roots in the 1740s as farmers and distillers. This family settled in Kentucky by the late 18th century, where his grandfather, Daniel Weller, purchased a distillery in Nelson County. After serving in the Mexican-American war, William Larue Weller returned home to his native Kentucky where he joined the family business and began working at his grandfather's distillery, as a wholesale whisky salesman. William Larue Weller and his knowledge evolved the whiskey into what the great brand is today. Weller had a great palate and in 1849, he introduced the first bourbon that used wheat as a secondary grain instead of rye. Wheated bourbons like Pappy Van Winkle, Larceny Bourbon, and W.L. Weller's have a softer and more gentle flavor and a slightly sweeter taste. Weller's bourbon was incredibly popular and ultimately forced him to place a green thumbprint on his invoices, and barrels as a certification of authenticity. Pappy began working at W.L. Weller & Sons in 1893 as a traveling whiskey salesman and eventually became the President of Stitzel-Weller Distillery. After W.L. Weller’s passing in 1899, Pappy and his co-worker Alex Farnsley purchased the company in 1908. George Weller, William’s oldest son was President of the company until it became Stitzel-Weller Distillery. This distillery opened on Derby Day of 1935. Buffalo Trace bought the W.L. Weller brand in 1999 and has been making the bourbon with nearly the same recipe ever since.
