Old Forester is one of bourbon's historic brands. It was one of the first to ever be sold by the bottle in order to ensure quality control to capitalise on the medicinal whiskey trade in the 19th century. It was even named after local Louisville physician, Dr. William Forrester (they dropped the second 'R' fro the name when he retired). Produced by Brown-Forman at their distillery in Shively, Kentucky.
This particular Old Forester celebrates Owsley Brown's crafting of his own personal stock of Old Forester in 1910, at 117 West Main Street on Louisville's Whiskey Row. This release has been barrel finished using his exact process.
