Old Forester, America’s first bottled bourbon, is the ideal gift for those looking to treat loved ones this Christmas.
Unwrap its rich history, as the only bourbon that has been available pre, post and during Prohibition, that to this day is still made by the same founding family.
The Kentucky straight bourbon whisky was first created by George Garvin Brown in 1870 in Louisville. Brown was a pharmacist who recognised early the need for a reliably high-quality whisky at a time when alcohol could only be sold for medicinal purposes. He was the first to sell his bourbon in bottles as opposed to straight from the barrel to the customer and the bottle still bears his handwritten guarantee today. It is this entrepreneurial approach and commitment to quality that has led to Old Forester’s respected reputation around the world.
Made using a recipe first introduced in 1870, this high in rye bourbon is full-bodied and rich – perfect for those cold winter nights. Old Forester delivers a genuine bourbon experience, making it perfect for sipping neat, or in a Whiskey Smash.
The rich story behind Old Forester and its rich but easy-drinking flavour profile, make it a thoughtful gift for whisky fans this Christmas.
