Early Times Distillery was founded in 1860 by John H. Beam. It closed because of Prohibition and its inventory along with the brand name was sold to Brown-Forman, the company licensed to market medicinal whiskey. Early Times bourbon remained popular in the following years but in 1983 the company decided to replace it domestically with Early Times Kentucky Whisky. The latter is made from the same mash as Early Times bourbon – 79% corn, 11% rye and 10% malted barley and aged in mixture of new charred oak barrels and refill barrels for 3 to 5 years. Employing used barrels for maturation disqualify spirit from straight bourbon category. Early Times Kentucky Whisky was a creation of Lincoln Henderson, the late Brown-Forman master distiller and at the turn of the Century enjoyed annual sales of over one million cases.
