David Nicholson was an owner of the grocery store in St. Louis, Missouri and very likely a blender, yet never a distiller. The famous recipe was developed in 1843 and apparently passed on through centuries. ‘1843’ is a wheated bourbon and in the late 19th Century Julian “Pappy” Van Winkle and William L. Weller became involved with the brand and produced it for the St. Louis market. The Van Winkle family held on to the brand until 2000, when they sold it to Luxco and few years later David Nicholson 1843 was re-launched. In 2015 it scored gold medal at the International Wine & Spirits Competition. Luxco is a non-distiller producer, who used to disclose that it got most of its bourbons from Heaven Hill Distillery, now they claim more then one source without revealing any.
