Birthday Bourbon is Coming Soon!

Happy Birthday (on September 2nd)  to George Garvin Brown, the man who first brought us Old Forester bourbon. The distillery is releasing its annual 12-year-old Birthday Bourbon. And as a gift to you, Old Forester is having a national sweepstakes to improve your chances of getting your hands on one of the celebratory bottles.

The birthday boy founded Old Forester in 1870 and was a real stickler for quality. His ongoing promise to customers: “There is nothing better in the market.”  

“Every year, Birthday Bourbon is a unique opportunity for lovers of Old Forester to taste a snapshot of bourbon that was laid down over a decade ago. This year’s 12-year-old offering serves up a classic Old Forester profile that honors George Garvin Brown’s ongoing legacy,” said Old Forester Master Taster Melissa Rift. 

Select retailers around the country will have the Birthday Bourbon for sale. Sweepstakes winners will be chosen September 2 and you can pick up your bottle on September 8.
