The Cathedral of Bourbon

In 1935, the first Saturday of May celebrated more than the running of the 61st Kentucky Derby, it marked the grand opening of the Stitzel-Weller Distillery in Louisville. “Stitzel-Weller is known as the cathedral of bourbon and it’s been a benchmark of quality and innovation in the bourbon industry for over 85 years now. They’ve been known for their wheated mash bills and having super high-quality production off of a 65-foot copper column still which is still on display at the distillery,” explained Elizabeth Dowell, the brand home manager for Stitzel-Weller Distillery. Dowell has worked at the distillery for two years but has always been in the spirits industry.
