Old Forester 1870 Original Batch Whisky
Old Forester 1870 Original Batch Whisky - Old Forester 1870's name refers to the year that Brown-Forman founder George Garvin Brown began batching Whiskey from three different distilleries (Atherton in Bardstown, Mattingly in Marion, and Mellwood in Louisville) to ensure a consistent product. 187 original Batch is also blended by Marianne Barnes, the protege of Brown-Forman's master distiller, Chris Morris.
