Set of six Kessler shot glasses in the form of a Stetson. Kessler Whiskey is an American brand of blended whiskey started by Julius Kessler in Colorado in the late 1870s. It is known for the slogan "smooth as silk." Julius Kessler went from saloon to saloon selling the whiskey. Kessler's company quickly became profitable, in part due to the higher prices of whiskey commanded in remote areas. In 1935 Kessler Whiskey was acquired by the Seagram Company. In 2000 Pernod acquired Kessler Whiskey then eventually sold the brand to Beam in 2005. Beam claims it is the No. 2 selling American blended whiskey. An advertising piece.
