Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Kessler Whiskey - 1970s to the United States at the moment (although we're working hard to fix that).

In the meantime, our friends over at The Whisky Shop might be able to help you out.

Thank you for your support and understanding 🙂

Kessler Whiskey - 1970s Reviews

An Indiana Favorite

A bottle of Kessler goes down alright, and can lead to good time when split between friends. Kessler is fairly smooth, and when drinking it straight it goes down a fair bit smoother than for instance a Bourbon like Jim Beam. Kessler seems to be an old time Indiana favorite. I was introduced to Kessler at the Indy 500 party by a slightly crazy, but all around nice guy who pulled a pint out of his pocket. It sort of became a ritual among friends every year down at the Indy 500. I am from Illinois, and for some reason Kessler is hard to get in Illinois, but as soon as you cross into Indiana it is readily available. I say an Indiana favorite, because that is the only place I have found it, and a friend who grew up in Indiana told me his Grandfather used to drink it. Back to the whiskey: I usually drink my whiskey straight, or with soda and I find Kessler to be smoother that some Bourbons, particularly when you drink it straight up. Kessler is not marketed as a top shelf product, and it is priced fairly low. If you have whiskey snob friends, they are going to turn up their noses at it! There is some rational behind the disdain if you like the stronger flavor of many of the Kentucky Bourbons. However, if you like some of the milder Irish or Canadian whiskies, you might find you like Kessler. To give Kessler a fair evaluation, first you have to be prepared to acknowledge that price is not the sole arbiter of quality. Second, you have to be prepared to acknowledge that not everyone prefers the strong flavored whiskey's, and that you might be one of those people, or might from time to time be in a mood for something a little milder. When your whiskey snob friends start giving you the business, remind them that Kessler comes out of a Jim Beam owned distillery in Clermont Kentucky, and it just might be made in the same facility that produces Makers Mark, Knob Creek and the people making it probably know a thing or two about making whiskey. I can say I have enjoyed Kessler, and hope to continue to. My friends and I always say "Smooth as Silk" after we enjoy a toast.
