  • Russ's Drink Corner
  • David Nicholson 1843 KSBW
  • Description
    • In 1843, David Nicholson started distilling his original bourbon recipe in the private back room of his St. Louis general store. For half a century his recipe had been passed down for generations. Eventually, the legendary Julian “Pappy” Van Winkle and W. L. Weller handcrafted Nicholson’s iconic “43” bourbon at the Stitzel distillery. The Van Winkles owned the brand until 2000 when Luxco acquired it. Still possessing the outstanding character for which it earned its original popularity in 1843, the David Nicholson legacy lives on. Aged in new charred oak barrels this wheated bourbon provides unparalleled smooth flavor and finish.
