Brother’s Bond Launches An “Original Cask Strength Bourbon Whiskey”

A relatively new bourbon brand, Brother’s Bond, just introduced its first limited-release Brother’s Bond Original Cask Strength Bourbon.

The new expression is available now via ReserveBar for pre-sale.

A statement from Brother’s Bond explained that the brand launched in 2021, created by longtime friends and on-screen brothers Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley. The brand is rooted in their friendship and their love of high-quality bourbon.

“When we were creating the Brother’s Bond Original Cask Strength, we knew that we wanted to make a smooth bourbon with big flavors,” Paul Wesley said. “As an unfiltered and uncut bourbon, we feel our cask strength is complex enough to satisfy the whiskey aficionado but will also entice the whiskey novice to begin delving deeper into the whiskey world.”

He noted that their on-screen characters from The Vampire Diaries shared a love for great bourbon, and that was a reflection of the brotherhood they’ve formed over the years.

Brother’s Bond has gone on to become one of the most followed alcohol brands on Instagram, with more than 1.77 million followers. And, the team at Brother’s Bond set a goal of using their platform to help reverse climate change by giving back a portion of their proceeds to support regenerative farming practices.

Brother’s Bond Bourbon is available in 35 states, and is distilled and aged in Lawrenceburg, Indiana. The latest addition to their portfolio, the Original Cask Strength is unfiltered and uncut and comes from 70 of their premium barrels with higher proofs.

The distiller’s notes show this expression to have aromas of ripe banana, walnut, leather, subtle smoke and lingering rye spices that lead to a balanced finish. The Original Cask Strength recently brought home a Gold Medal from the 2022 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

“We’re incredibly grateful to everyone who has welcomed us into the whiskey industry. Our ever-growing love for fine quality spirits inspired us to create the Brother’s Bond Original Cask Strength Bourbon,” Ian Somerhalder said. “As we continue to expand our portfolio, we want consumers to be assured that they are getting an ultra-premium liquid that will exceed their expectations.”

Brother’s Bond Cask Strength Bourbon clocks in at 57.9% ABV and has a suggested retail price of $79.99.
