Brother’s Bond Bourbon recently expanded their distribution market with their recent foray into Canada, the first international market expansion outside the USA. As one of the fastest-growing ultra-premium bourbon brands, Brother’s Bond Bourbon was created in 2021 by longtime friends Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley, who were on-screen brothers in the hit television show ‘The Vampire DiariesTo celebrate the Canadian launch, both Somerhalder and Wesley attended an intimate consumer bottle signing event at LCBO’s flagship store at Queens Quay East & Cooper Street in Toronto, on Tuesday April 11, 2023. 

This bourbon is a mixture of grains, 65% corn and 22% rye, with wheat and barley making up the rest. It is aged for four years in American oak barrels creating sweet, fruity and floral aromas with spice and bready notes. Rich and complex flavours with caramel, spice and a touch of sweetness. Elegant and well-balanced.

Since its initial launch, the award-winning whiskey has received industry accolades, including ASCOT Awards Platinum and Gold, TAG Awards Platinum, Gold, Double Gold & Best in Show, San Francisco Wine & Spirits Competition Gold, John Barleycorn Awards Gold, and more. It’s also seen quite a success via its Instagram channel, surpassing 1.8 million followers!
