In case you aren’t familiar, actors Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley (famous on-screen brothers, whiskey craftsmen, and real-life friends) created Brother’s Bond small-batch whiskeys as a nod to their on-screen characters, their shared love for great bourbon, and a reflection of the brotherhood they’ve formed over the years. Meticulously crafted using hand-selected mash bills, undergoing copper column and copper pot doubler distillation, and aged for a minimum of 4 years, the award-winning small-batch whiskey offers taste characteristics that are incomparably complex and bold, yet rich and balanced.

Brother’s Bond goes beyond exceptional taste by giving back a portion of proceeds to regenerative agriculture with every bottle purchase, embodying a commitment to sustainability and environmental responsibility. By supporting local farmers across the United States with regenerative agriculture initiatives to help sustain future crop yields, generations to come can continue creating lasting moments over a quality bourbon.
