    150 barrels (really only 147, since 3 were completely empty) were aggregated for the Old Forester 150th Anniversary release, which were divided into three unique batches intended to honor George Garvin Brown’s process of batching bourbon from his three original distilleries. 

    Old Forester 150th Anniversary Bourbon honors George Garvin Brown’s original process, and represents a collaboration between Master Distiller Chris Morris and Master Taster Jackie Zykan. This expression consists of 150 barrels chosen specially by Chris, made from wood seasoned 150 days. Jackie then personally tasted and batched all 150 barrels into three very distinct flavor profiles and proof points showcasing the taste variations among barrels depending on where they rest in the Old Forester barrelhouses. The bourbon is presented in an amber glass bottle, reminiscent of the hand-blown glass of George’s day and sealed in a commemorative keepsake canister.
