Wenzel Whiskey, a whiskey blending experience and event space in the heart of Covington, Ky., and Molly Wellmann, one of Cincinnati’s most iconic mixologists and entrepreneurs, have teamed up to release a new limited, locally brewed whiskey called The One 50th Blend.
This limited bottle release celebrates Wellmann’s 50th birthday and the 150th anniversary of whiskey being produced at Wenzel. A limited number of bottles will be available for sale on Saturday, November 25 beginning at noon, while supplies last. Wellmann will be on-site to sign bottles.
“This is such an iconic way to celebrate a 50th birthday,” said entrepreneur, Wellmann. “I had the pleasure of joining several of my friends knowledgeable in spirits for Wenzel’s unique whiskey blending experience where we all created and blind tasted our own whiskeys. Mine won, and that’s how we ended up with The One 50th Blend Gold Label release.”
Among the friends to join Wellmann, were Jake Warm, owner of O.K.I., Brad Bonds, Co-Founder of Revival Vintage Bottle Shop, and Bill Whitlow, operator of Rich’s Proper, Hangry Omar’s and the soon-to-be Opal Rooftop Restaurant & Bar and brand ambassador for Wenzel Whiskey. This friendly competition and collaboration resulted in the new limited-edition blend.
“Molly and I first met in 2012 while she was opening OKBB and I was opening Goodfellas and Wiseguy Lounge in Mainstrasse Village,” said Whitlow. “We’ve become great friends and, while we’ve done some fun collaborations over the years, this is the biggest one we’ve done to date. What a perfect way to celebrate two regional icons – Molly Wellmann and bourbon.”
Bottles of The One 50th Blend will be available for purchase, while supplies last, for $99 each on Saturday, November 25 beginning at noon Wenzel Whiskey, located at 15 Tobacco Alley in Covington. Wellmann will be onsite to sign bottles for those interested.
