One of the oldest Bourbon brands available today, Old Forester dates back to the 1870s and is one of the fastest-growing American whiskey brands in the US.

Owned by Brown-Forman, the brand is on the receiving end of shed-loads of investment as its parent tries to take advantage of the Americana boom going on in spirits. A brand new distillery and visitor centre in downtown Louisville is set to open imminently and will boost capacity tremendously, expect new releases to follow.

Old Forester Bourbon was the first to be sold in America in sealed glass bottles, to avoid any unsavoury folks tampering with their carefully-considered recipe. It was first seen on shelves back in 1870, and the rye-rich bourbon continues to be enjoyed today.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Top notes of orange blossom and cedar. Soon develops the classic rye bread warmth and a lingering waft of buttered pancakes.

Palate: Starts quite sweet with caramel and maple syrup, though swiftly develops intense oak-y elements and hints of pine resin. Sweetness returns slightly on the mid-palate.

Finish: Juicy orange and spicy oak continue on the finish.

Please note: Vintages may vary. If you require a specific vintage please contact us in advance to check.
