Very few Bourbon brands can claim much of a pre-Prohibition heritage, but Brown-Forman’s Old Forester can. George Garvin Brown created Old Forester in 1870 in the same way many of today’s whiskey entrepreneurs got started – by buying bulk whiskey from several distilleries and blending them together to create his own unique flavor. His great-great grandson Campbell Brown is the managing director of Old Forester today, and joins us on this week’s WhiskyCast In-Depth. We’ll also have the week’s whisky news, tasting notes, and on Behind the Label, we’ll look at the best whisky advertising money can’t buy…because it’s literally on the money!
