Stoli Group USA acquired the national distribution, sales, marketing and global rollout for Kentucky Owl Bourbon, a pre-Prohibition Era brand. “Kentucky Owl is a great next step for our portfolio of premium and luxury brands. Bourbons have been experiencing impressive growth recently and we see a strong opportunity in the super-premium sub-category, in particular,” said Patrick Piana, President of Stoli Group USA. Dixon Dedman will serve as the Global Brand Ambassador for Kentucky Owl. He is the great-great-grandson of Charles Mortimer Dedman, who founded the brand in 1879.
