Old Forester is America's first bottled Bourbon Whiskey. Originally made by George Garvin Brown in 1870 it still uses the same recipe. Twice-distilled, this remarkable spirit is crafted using a precise grain recipe of corn, rye and malted barley. Old Forester is richer in rye than most bourbons, resulting in a uniquely full, rich, genuine character.
