Old Forester 1897 Bottled in Bond, the second in the Old Forester Whiskey Row Series, is crafted to honor a watershed moment in bourbon historyíë_íë_’Âthe U.S. Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897.

This 100 proof expression is the second release in the Old Forester Whiskey Row Series and was specially crafted to honor the U.S. Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897. After the U.S. Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897 to be labeled as Bottled in Bond, whisky must be the product of one distillation season, one distiller and from one distillery. The concept behind the Act, the idea of íë_íë_íëí‰sealed-in qualityíë_íë_?, was something that Old Forester, America's First Bottled Bourbon, introduced in 1870.
