Old Medley 12 years is the rebirth of a brand that's been around since the 1930s and was started by Thomas Aquinas Medley. Like many old whiskey brands it's changed hands many times over the years and was eventually discontinued. However the descendants (grandson and great-grandson) of Thomas have resurrected the brand and Old Medley is adorning liquor store shelves once again.
