Description

Labeled as "The Greatest American Whiskey," Yellowstone Bourbon was created in 1872 in Louisville, when the namesake national park was opened. D. H. Taylor and John T. Williams joined as "Taylor & Williams" in 1876, though the bourbon was originally made by J.B. Dant. According to bourbonveach.com, the paper label (traces found on our bottle) appeared after Taylor retired in 1892. This bottle is likely pre-prohibition because the full word "incorporated" appeared on the Yellowstone advertisements pre-prohibition, and the abbreviation "inc." appeared after, though the label stayed relatively the same. The brand has been revived by Limestone Branch since 2014.
