LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A bourbon name from the past hit the shelves in Kentucky Friday.

King of Kentucky is a 14-year-old Kentucky Straight bourbon whiskey that was established in 1881. 

About 1,000 bottles of the bourbon will be available exclusively in Kentucky. A total of 1,000 bottles went on sale Friday morning, priced at about $200 a bottle.

Brown-Forman bought the brand in 1936 and converted it to a blended whiskey until it was discontinued in 1968.

King of Kentucky will be released each year from the single barrel inventory. It will feature handwritten details of proof, age, warehouse location, lot number, serial number and barrel number.

It will be hand-signed by Master Distiller Chris Morris.
