A Blue Skies and J. Mattingly 1845 Collaboration

The 2024 Kentucky Mogadishu Mile Bourbon Bottle was blended at J. Mattingly 1845 in Frankfort, KY by 3 Purple Heart recipients, 1 injured in the line of duty police officer, 1 Gold Star Mom w/ 3 friends and family members, 1 Widow of a Police Officer along with the J. Mattingly Staff.

Those in attendance also selected the bottle, labeling, and wax.

19 barrels were used to create this unique blend. The number 19 is significant because it is the number of men who made the ultimate sacrifice during the Battle of Mogadishu and the following days.

This is a limited run of 500 bottles, each numbered. The bottles cost $140, and a portion of each sale will support the BS3G and Three Rangers Foundation missions.

Starting in 1845 with John Graves Mattingly’s first distillery in Louisville, Registered Distillery #2, the Mattingly family has been involved in at least nine different distilleries in Kentucky, and is connected to some of the most prominent distilling families in Kentucky including the Willetts and Samuels. Today, Jeff Mattingly, a descendant of John Graves Mattingly, continues the family distilling tradition. Born in Mattingly, KY, Jeff grew up working on his family’s 600-acre farm, learning the value of hard work and absorbing his family’s distilling heritage. In 2010 he formalized that expertise in Georgetown, KY, carrying on the Mattingly family tradition with spirits plant DSP KY-20030. Now, Jeff’s son Cameron has assumed the mantle of Vice President of Production, continuing the legacy into the latest generation for J. Mattingly 1845 Distillery in Frankfort, KY.
