Old Forester® In 1870, Old Forester became "America’s First Bottled Bourbon" when founder George Garvin Brown revolutionized the industry by being the first to put Bourbon in a glass bottle
OLD FORESTER IS "AMERICA'S FIRST BOTTLED BOURBON", AND THE ONLY BOURBON CONTINUOUSLY SOLD BY THE SAME COMPANY BEFORE, DURING AND AFTER PROHIBITION.

In 1870, George Garvin Brown created Old Forester on Louisville’s famous Whiskey Row at 322 W. Main St. Old Forester was "America’s First Bottled Bourbon" – the first bourbon to be sold in sealed glass bottles instead of from barrels, to ensure consistent quality.
