W.L. Weller C.Y.P.B. Bourbon & Full Proof Bundle is a unique spirit that was created A few years ago when whiskey drinkers were asked to "Craft Your Perfect Bourbon" (C.Y.P.B.) online by visiting www.yourperfectbourbon.com and choosing their ideal bourbon recipe, proof, warehouse location, and age. Thousands chose wheated bourbon, just like William Larue Weller, and created this wheated bourbon recipe, which is aged on the highest warehouse floors for eight years and bottled at 95 proof. It is part of a series of bourbons named to commemorate The Wellers. The Wellers established their roots in the 1740s as distillers. His family settled in Kentucky in 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.
