Cream of Kentucky is a brand that Schenley acquired when they acquired the Geo. T. Stagg Distillery during Prohibition. The brand dates back to 1891 when the Edel Bros. of Richmond, Virginia trademarked “Kentucky Cream” and “Cream of Kentucky”. They were rectifiers who purchased whiskey from the Stagg Distillery, but they went out of business early in the 20th century. This left the trademark with Stagg along with the barrels they had made to support the brand.
