Old Forester 1897 Bourbon
RAISE A GLASS—OR BOTTLE—TO THE US BOTTLED-IN-BOND ACT OF 1897.
Old Forester 1897 Bottled in Bond, the second in the Old Forester Whiskey Row Series, is crafted to honor a watershed moment in bourbon history—the U.S. Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897.
This 100 proof expression is the second release in the Old Forester Whiskey Row Series and was specially crafted to honor the U.S. Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897. After the U.S. Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897 to be labeled as Bottled in Bond, whisky must be the product of one distillation season, one distiller and from one distillery. The concept behind the Act, the idea of “sealed-in quality”, was something that Old Forester, America’s First Bottled Bourbon, introduced in 1870.
Old Forester bourbon introduced by George Garvin Brown on Whiskey Row at 322 W. Main St. America’s First Bottled Bourbon® was the first bourbon to be sold in sealed glass bottles to ensure quality, made according to Brown’s 1870 Original Batch process of batching barrels from three distilleries to create a consistent flavor profile.

An intense kiss of caramel and coffee
Sweet fruit and spice on the tongue
A big, bold love-you-all-night kind of finish.
