HISTORY IN A BOTTLE
Old Forester whiskey loves getting older. Each summer, the family-run Kentucky distillery releases a Birthday Bourbon ($130), which has achieved cult status over the years. And 2020 represents a big milestone for Old Forester, which was founded in 1870. In honor of the brand’s sesquicentennial, it has produced three limited-release 150th Anniversary Bourbons ($150), which are bottled at individual batch strength— each is more than 125 proof—and would no doubt make founder George Garvin Brown proud.
