The Hometown Bourbon of Bourbon’s Hometown™
A century and a half ago, Whiskey Row was the economic center of Louisville – home to distillers, wholesalers and Old Forester, America’s First Bottled Bourbon™. In 1870, George Garvin Brown signed and sealed Old Forester with a promise: a handwritten guarantee to produce Bourbon of the highest consistent quality. As you step into 119 West Main Street, the same four walls that Old Forester called home before Prohibition, you’ll see that the times have changed, but the promise of sealed-in quality from the First Bottled Bourbon endures.
You can’t separate the stories of Bourbon and Louisville – a rich, entwined history that’s created the fabric of our hometown. At the Old Forester Distilling Company, you’ll learn about the histories of both, and of course, that of the Hometown Bourbon of Bourbon’s Hometown.
