Old Forester 2013 Birthday Bourbon

For the 2014 release, the fermenter set had a higher pH setting, which created a distiller’s beer that was fruitier and less sour than typical batches. Once distilled and barreled, it was matured in Warehouse I on the 7th floor, where exposure to high summer temperature advanced the ripening of the rich fruit base.
