During the late 19th century, an overwhelming number of distilleries throughout the United States were still not aging their whiskey. As a result, some retailers would add juices and syrups to sweeten the whiskey, while others would add acid and tobacco to give their whiskey its signature, amber hue.

In 1870, George Garvin Brown — a young pharmaceuticals salesman from Kentucky — saw the need for a consistently high-quality whiskey that would remain unadulterated after distillation. After saving $5,500, Brown and his brother opened the doors to J.T.S. Brown & Bro. Distillery and began distilling bourbon. Unlike other distilleries at the time, Brown aged his bourbon, which was named Old Forester, in oak casks and bottled it in a sealed glass bottle to ensure authenticity and quality. Since its introduction in 1870, Old Forester has been on the market continuously, even during Prohibition, when it continued to be sold for medicinal purposes. It is the only bourbon continuously distilled and marketed by the founding family before, during and after Prohibition.

This 2018 batch of Old Forester Birthday Bourbon was released on September 2, in honor of George Garvin Brown’s birthday, the founder of Old Forester. Like previous batches, this whiskey is aged just 12 years. The whiskey comes from two lots of barrels distilled on June 9, 2006, and matured in Warehouses I and J. This is the first Birthday Bourbon to be bottled at the new Old Forester Distillery on Louisville’s Whiskey Row.
