The original recipe for Rebel Yell dates back to 1849, when it was invented at what would later become the Stitzel-Weller Distillery. Although many famous bourbons were produced at the Stitzel-Weller Distillery (including Pappy Van Winkle), most shared one unique characteristic pioneered by William Laurel Weller himself â€” instead of rye, the bourbons used wheat as a secondary grain in their mashbill, lending a softer, smoother flavor to the whiskey.
In 1936, nearly a century after the original recipe was developed, former Louisville Mayor Charles F. Farnsley officially registered the â€œRebel Yellâ€ brand, distilling the bourbon limited batches for exclusive distribution in the southern United States.
