Old Forester, America’s first bottled bourbon, is the ideal gift for those looking to treat their Dads this Father’s Day. With a history as rich as its taste, Old Forester is the only bourbon that has been available pre, post and during Prohibition, and 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, and recognised an early need for a reliably high-quality whisky, that met medicinal standards. The bottle still bears a handwritten guarantee from him, and it is these consistently impeccable standards of craft in production that have lead to Old Forester becoming recognised amongst top bartenders around the world.
Made using a recipe, which is in keeping of when it was first introduced in 1870, the high in rye bourbon, is full bodied and rich. The spirit delivers a genuine bourbon experience, and smooth character, making it perfect for a Whiskey Smash, the traditional Whiskey Sour cocktail, or sipping neat.
The rich story behind Old Forester and accessibility as a spirit, make it the ideal, thoughtful gift for whisky fans this Father’s Day.
