About:

Old Forester 1897 Bottled in Bond is crafted to honor a watershed moment in bourbon history – the U.S. Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897. This expression follows the Bottled in Bond standards that whisky must be aged in a federally bonded warehouse for at least four years, the product of one distillation season, one distiller and from one distillery and bottled at 100 Proof. The concept behind these regulations – the idea of ‘sealed in quality’ – was something Old Forester introduced in 1870, as America’s First Bottled Bourbon.

"This bourbon has concentrated flavours, but they go well together. There's vanilla, red apple, citrus peel, sweet and hot spices, vitamin bottle tartness, espresso and a lot of leather. A gold old-fashioned bourbon mustiness creeps into the finish, truly giving the drinker the sensation of being transported to an old storage facility, which is probably the point." - Amanda Schuster, Distiller
