Kessler Whiskey is an American brand of blended whiskey started by Julius Kessler in 1888. It is known for the slogan, "Smooth as Silk". The brand is currently owned and produced by Beam Suntory. Beam claims it is the #2 selling American blended whiskey.
The Whiskey Jug reviewed Kessler Whiskey in 2015, concluding that it was not very good, smelling and tasting "like a cheap bourbon that's been watered down and mixed with vodka". The review suggested that the whiskey's popularity as a cocktail mixer was due to its not adding much flavor, but just fading into the background. It was considered much better than Seagram's 7.
Kessler started selling whiskey in Leadville, Colorado in the late 1870s. In the early days, Julius Kessler went from saloon to saloon selling the whiskey. Kessler's company quickly became profitable, in part due to the higher prices the whiskey commanded in remote areas. Kessler retired from the business in 1921 at the age of 65.
