Old Forester Statesman Straight Bourbon Whiskey
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.
Old Forester Classic Kentucky Straight Bourbon touts itself as the first bourbon ever bottled. The bourbon is made from a mash of corn, rye and malted barley — after the grains have been milled and mashed, they are fermented for five to seven days with a proprietary yeast strain that is grown fresh daily at the distillery.
This extra-long fermentation process ensures that the bourbon has an unparalleled depth and complexity. Following fermentation, the grains are twice distilled before being matured in new, American oak casks.
Inspired by the film the “Kingsman: The Golden Circle,” this expression is bold and blended to 95 proof from hand-selected casks of Old Forester’s renowned Kentucky Straight bourbon “from the warmest places in the warehouse. Because true character is only revealed after a little heat” (producer).
In a statement, President of Old Forester Campbell Brown proclaimed “…We’ve created an Old Forester Statesman product that is very different from the Old Forester that you would be buying today. It’s in an older sort of bottle, it’s a premium expression of what we make.” Winner of a Masters at the American Whiskey Masters Competition, the Statesman is an exceptional balance of heat and spice.

A lot of variety
Quick delivery and great communication.
This is a bottle everyone should have. no joke. This is 1 of 2 that I use to introduce people to bourbon that isn’t liquor whisky shop priced but I truly believe is top shelf quality. If you know anything about Buffalo Trace distillery you know nearly everything they make is liquor whisky shop – and unfortunately (like a lot of their other bottles) the secret is out on this one and it’s becoming increasingly harder to find
