We look forward to again welcoming you to our home on historic Whiskey Row.

At Old Forester, we value your time and the health and safety of our employees and guests.  In response to the COVID – 19 health crisis, Old Forester is taking measures to help prevent the potential spread. Social distancing and directional signage will be posted throughout the distillery.  Staff will be wearing the recommended PPE, and will be available to answer questions and to help direct you through the space.  We will be conducting temperature checks and guests will be asked to respond to a health questionnaire and waiver prior to entering Old Forester.  Masks are required while on-site.  Government directed occupancy and capacity guidelines will also be enforced.

During your visit, we ask that you please help us to reduce the risk of transmission and follow the safety guidelines posted in the distillery.  Thank you for your understanding and for your patience during this time.

Gift Shop*: Thursday – Saturday from 11 am – 5 pm
