Old Forester founder, George Garvin Brown was truly a pioneer in the spirits industry, and the first to deliver a consistent flavor profile by batching whiskey from three different distilleries. Old Forester 1870 Original Batch, presented at 90 Proof, honors this milestone with a blend of a small batch of barrels from three different warehouses replicating Brown’s batching process, resulting in a light and soft Bourbon.
