Wow, a truly old and rare Old Fitzgerald bottling from the early 1960s! This almost mythical whiskey was distilled at the legendary Stitzel-Weller distillery and bottled under the supervision of the one and only Pappy van Winkle. Who knows… Pappy might have even cradled this bottle personally… Old Fitzgerald 6 Years Bottled-in-Bond was bottled at 86 proof and exported for the Italian market. Bottled-in-bond means the bourbon is bottled at 100 proof by US law, but since those rules didn’t apply for Italian import, this is the 86 proof version. Silly Italians. The story of the legendary Stitzel-Weller distillery starts with William Larue Weller, who founded the wholesale liquor business W.L. Weller & Sons in the 1840s. This is where bourbon icon Julian ‘Pappy’ Van Winkle started his career as a young man. Over time, he assumed more responsibility at the company and eventually gained a controlling interest. When Prohibition ended in 1933, Pappy merged W.L. Weller & Sons with the A. Ph. Stitzel Distillery, thus creating the Stitzel-Weller distillery. The distillery’s bourbon was universally celebrated, but crisis hit the bourbon market and Stitzel-Weller was forced to close in 1992. Today, most of the former Stitzel-Weller brands are distilled at Buffalo Trace, but original Stitzel-Weller bourbon is still any whiskey lover’s holy grail.
