More information

Old Forester was born in 1870. George Brown was a whiskey merchant in partnership with his older half-brother. In those days, distilleries and distributors sold whiskey in barrels to bars and groceries, who sold it to consumers either by the drink or by filling a container the consumer brought from home. Many less than scrupulous merchants watered the whiskey or “extended” it with unaged spirits and other, sometimes toxic, substances.

Among those who complained about this practice were physicians, who often prescribed whiskey as a tonic and anesthetic. George Brown, who previously worked for a wholesale drug company, knew about this complaint and got the idea of selling whiskey only in sealed bottles, so a buyer could trust the contents. He was aided by the increasing availability of mass-produced and, hence, lower cost bottles, although it would be another 30 years before Michael Owens invented the first fully automated bottle-making system.

Old Forester was chosen as the "American Whisky of the Year" in 2003.
