Old Forester 1870 Original Batch
Old Forester 1870 Original Batch For Sale
In 1870 George Garvin Brown created Old Forester on Louisville, KY’s famous whiskey row. In honour of that milestone year in bourbon history, Old Forester crafted a tribute – Old Forester 1870 Original Batch – the first craft expression in the Old Forester Whiskey Row Series.
Old Forester 1870 Original Batch echoes George Garvin Brown’s original 1870 batching process. Back then, Brown batched barrels obtained from three distilleries to create a consistent flavour profile. To emulate that process today, they select barrels from three warehouses, each barrel originating from a different day of production, with a different entry proof and a different age profile. The three expressions of Old Forester are then batched together to craft Old Forester 1870 Original Batch. This 90-proof bourbon is minimally filtered, to honour the processes available to George Garvin Brown at that time.
‘Old Forester’ is the longest running bourbon on the market, approximately 150 years and the first bourbon to be sold exclusively in sealed bottles.
