    Wathens..a little info please

    I havent looked at their label in a while so I need some help here..Who makes this bourbon and why is it bottled in California? It is excellent bourbon,but sending there to be bottled has to make the cost a lot higher..anyone?

    Wathen's is a non-distiller producer. There is no way of knowing who made it, but if it still says Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, then it was one or more of the usual suspects.

    You're really missing out, Cat. Not only is the search function a great way to get questions answered, you're sure to learn more than you thought to ask for. And if you use advanced search and search titles only, it doesn't take much more time than typing out a new post.

    Sorry Wildcat,

    You don't tell valued members of this forum like Mozilla that they're not allowed to post if they're not going to spoon feed you on demand.

    The search is simple, fast and effective - just as he suggested.

    I just typed "wathens" into the advanced search, specified titles only and was given 6 threads: yours, the two best sources for info, and three from the early days of this forum. Within one minute I had accessed all of the many posts I remembered from a few years back. The third thread "Wathens available again" discusses your questions in detail.

    By the way, Wathens is bottled by Frank-Lin in San Jose, and you can read the reasoning as told to forum members by Charles Medley himself in the thread.

    If you're really pressed for time, I'm always available to do your research for you, though my fee isn't cheap...let me know, I'll set you up an account. I just need some simple credit information, some references, your first born...usual stuff like that.
