Every fingerprint is unique. The same is true for every barrel of bourbon. Old Forester Single Barrel is bottled from one individual barrel, so there is no other bourbon exactly like it.

Old Forester Single Barrel is crafted using the time-honored methods established by George Garvin Brown more than 150 years ago. Old Forester Single Barrel customers will have the opportunity to sample three 100 proof barrels or three barrel strength barrels of rich, robust Old Forester at the distillery or through an in-market selection. Barrels that produce 100 proof bourbon will yield approximately 200 bottles and, depending on proof, barrel strength selections will produce approximately 160 bottles.

The Old Forester Single Barrel Program only produces a limited number of barrels each year and will remain allocated based on production constraints. Individual buyers interested in purchasing a single barrel may reach out to a local off-premise or on-premise account where they have a relationship to see if they will facilitate a barrel purchase.
