In 1870 George Garvin Brown created Old Forester on Louisville, KYâ€™s famous whiskey row. In honor of that milestone year in bourbon history, we have crafted a tribute â€“ Old Forester 1870 Original Batch â€“ the first craft expression in the Old Forester Whiskey Row Series.
Old Forester 1870 Original Batch echoes George Garvin Brownâ€™s original 1870 batching process. Back then, Brown batched barrels obtained from three distilleries to create a consistent flavor profile. To emulate that process today, we also 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 will be minimally filtered, to honor the processes available to George Garvin Brown at that time.
