Old Forester, America’s First Bottled Bourbon, is the bourbon lover’s bourbon. There is nothing better in the market.

Company Overview

As America’s first bottled bourbon, Old Forester enjoys a heritage as rich as its taste. In 1870, George Garvin Brown, a young pharmaceuticals salesman in Louisville, Kentucky, saw the need for a consistently high-quality whisky that met medicinal standards. With $5,500 in saved and borrowed money, Brown and his half brother started J.T.S. Brown and Bro. They sold Old Forester Bourbon Whisky exclusively in sealed glass bottles to assure its quality. George Garvin Brown ensured the quality of his product with his hand written guarantee on every bottle.
