John B Stetson Kentucky Bourbon is from German company Schwarze und Schlichte. The bourbon itself was distilled and aged in the US (probably by Heaven Hill but that is not confirmed) and then shipped to Germany for bottling.

This was done to sell in the German market but John B Stetson Kentucky Bourbon is now available more widely, including here in the UK.

The brand name and general marketing image is to honour the inventor of the cowboy hat. The iconic hats (as seen in just about every cowboy movie ever made) are now simply known as Stetsons.

John B Stetson Kentucky Bourbon is described as a pot-stilled sour mash bourbon whisky aged in white oak barrels.

We haven’t tasted it yet (we will update when we do) but it is an interesting bottle, if only for the round-the-world supply chain. Germans “making” bourbon whisky just shows its increasingly popularity all over the world.
