OLD FORESTER

In 1870, George Garvin Brown, a young pharmaceuticals salesman in Louisville, Kentucky, saw the need for a consistently high-quality whisky that met medicinal standards. With $5,500 in saved and borrowed money, Brown and his half-brother started J.T.S. Brown and Bro. They sold Old Forester Bourbon Whisky exclusively in sealed glass bottles to assure its quality. George Garvin Brown ensured the quality of his product with his handwritten guarantee on every bottle.

You will notice that originally Old Forester was spelled with two r's. When Dr Forrester retired, his endorsement would no longer have been valid. The name changed to reflect his change in status.

Twice-distilled, this remarkable spirit is crafted using an exacting 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. Adding to this uniqueness, Old Forester is fermented with a proprietary yeast strain that is still grown fresh daily at the distillery.
