Brother’s Bond™, created by Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley, known as “The Salvatore Brothers” from the famed TV series, “The Vampire Diaries.” The true bonds of their friendship strengthened over drinking bourbon, both on and off-screen, for over a decade.
The brand name is a nod to their on-screen characters, their shared love for great bourbon, and a reflection of the sense of brotherhood they have formed over the years. Ian and Paul hand-selected 70 of the finest Brother’s Bond Bourbon barrels to create this limited release for bourbon lovers.
This new award-winning limited release of the original cask strength expression showcases Brother’s Bond Bourbon in its undiluted form, unfiltered and uncut at 115.8 proof.

Aged min 4 years in virgin American oak, barrel staves #4 char, barrel heads #2 char.
This cask strength bourbon has complex aromas of ripe banana, walnut, leather, warmed rye bread, vanilla and subtle smoke. On the palate, a bold and sophisticated taste of dried fruits, caramel, vanilla, and honey.
