Rebel yell straight bourbon whiskey is distilled and aged in Napoleon and XO cognac casks.
For more than 150 years, Rebel Bourbon has remained true to its rebellious roots. That’s probably why it feels right at home at Lux Row Distillers in Bardstown, Kentucky. Since 2018, the distillery has been making a name for itself in Bourbon Country by honoring tradition but doing whiskey differently.
It’s not every day you visit a distillery with more than 18,000 square feet, six barrel warehouses at capacity, and a 43-foot custom copper still churning out bold spirits, including Rebel Bourbon and its partners-in-clrime Ezra Brooks, David Nicholson, and Blood Oath. Where you travel from doesn’t matter. When you arrive, you’ll know why you came.

Cognac is a type of brandy produced in the Cognac region of western France. Only brandy produced in the Cognac region of France can be considered cognac.
Napoleon cognac is a style of cognac that has been allowed to age in oak barrels for at least six years or more. Legend has it that the former French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte loved cognac, but he could not, of course, carry his personal barrels of cognac along with him on his military campaign across Europe. According to legend, Napoleon insisted that his personal barrels of cognac remain undisturbed while he was away, and even appointed friends to guard them. When Napoleon returned to claim his cognac six and a half years later, he found he enjoyed the aged cognac even more than he had enjoyed the young cognac. Today, Napoleon cognac is typically aged for six and a half years, making it younger only than XO cognac, which is typically aged for an average of about 15 to 25 years.
