These are genuine barrels that aged a truly genuine bourbon, Old Forester Kentucky Straight Bourbon. This bourbon was created in 1870 and has been distilled and marketed by the same family before, during and after Prohibition – the only brand that can make that claim!

These freshly emptied barrels, which were charred to a deep No. 4 level, are sure to impart plenty of Old Forestor’s influence on any beer, wine, cider or other beverage that they’re filled with.

Clocking in at 86 proof, Old Forester Bourbon has a rich, full flavor that includes floral, mint, rich tobacco leaf and vanilla aromas, alongside tastes of oak, pine, sweet corn, rye spice, soft vanilla and light orange tasting notes. The bourbon carries a mash bill of 72% corn, 18% rye and 10% barley.
