Old Forester 1920 Prohibition Style Bourbon

Sold out


A fine, award-winning bourbon that's a bit unkown and probably a bit underpricedíë_íë_’Âfitting for prohibition spirit. 1920 Prohibition Style is Old Forester's toast to the innovative and enduring spirit of Old Forester.

This 115 proof expression is the third release in our Old Forester Whiskey Row series and celebrates the brand's continued distillation during Prohibition. For 13 years, the production, transport and sale of alcohol was strictly prohibited. However, Old Forester was granted a permit to continue distilling on Louisville's Whiskey Row. The 115 proof expression represents a barrel sample that company president Owsley Brown I would have batched at the beginning of Prohibition.
