Old Forester Bourbon Bottled In Bond 1897 750ml
$91.99 price per bottle
This 100 proof expression is the second release in our Old Forester Whiskey Row Series was specially crafted to honor the U. S. Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897. After the U. S. Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897 to be labeled as Bottled in Bond, whisky must be the product of one distillation season, one distiller and from one distillery. The concept behind the Act - the idea of sealed-in quality - was something that Old Forester - America's First Bottled Bourbon - introduced in 1870.
A truly rare and distinctive occasion took place in Louisville, Kentucky in 1870. When George Garvin Brown sealed Bourbon in a bottle for the very first time, he did so knowing it would guarantee quality and consistency for Bourbon lovers everywhere. And five generations and nearly 150 years later, our family still watches over the production of every drop of Old Forester with that same care.
