In 2006, the David Sherman Company re-branded itself to Luxco as a tribute to one of its co-founders, Paul Lux, and as a reflection of the current ownership of the company. As Luxco has grown it has remained family-owned.
The company was born of humble beginnings back in 1958 when Paul A. Lux and David Sherman Sr. established the David Sherman Corporation as a private label bottler to serve the needs of distributors, wholesalers and retailers in the mid-west around St. Louis, Chicago and Milwaukee. During that time, Old Ezra was an 11-year-aged, 101-Proof bourbon whiskey. Since that time, the company has grown into a major producer, bottler, importer and marketer with an impressive portfolio of over 50 wine and spirit brands. Some of the whiskey brands that Luxco produces include: Ezra Brooks Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey, Rebel Yell, Bourbon Supreme, Yellowstone, Rebel Reserve, Wallstreet Whiskey, D. Nicholson 1843, and Davies County.
