Priceless Bourbon with noble ancestry

Sometime in the 1850s, an entire street in Louisville’s center was dedicated to Bourbon production, called Whiskey Row. Soon after that, the first Bourbon in sealed glass bottles was introduced and they called it Old Forester, named after Dr. William Forrester, the local pharmacist and a good patron of George G. Brown, the Whiskey maker. Now, who names their new product after their favorite customer anymore? Then, in 1910 (hence the name on the bottle), Old Forester had a fire in the bottling line, so in order to save the precious amber potion, they moved the batch into new, charred oak barrels. When they fixed the distillery and tried the stored Bourbon, their minds were blown. Not literally, obvs – the flavors were incredible.

Today, Old Forester 1910 is the final release in the Whiskey Row Series, and it emulates that rescued Whiskey in being moved to a heavily charred (almost burned) second barrel. When it’s mature enough, it’s bottled at 93 proof. Old Forester 1910 is a wonderful mad scientist’s experiment that delivers a unique and unprecedented flavor.

Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Sure, Kentucky gets all the press when it comes to Bourbon. And with good reason—nearly 95% of it is produced there. But Bourbon can be made anywhere as long as it's within the United States. Just ask states with budding distilleries like Illinois and New York.
At any given time, there are more barrels of Bourbon in Kentucky than there are people. The population of the Bluegrass State is about 4.4 million. Today there are more than 5 million barrels of Bourbon sitting in the rick-houses of that Old Kentucky Home. That’s nearly 300 bottles of Bourbon per person, or about 60 gallons each.
Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
"Remember that iconic poster from World War II showing Rosie the Riveter as a patriotic American woman doing her part for the war effort? Well, hundreds of businesses did their part too, and the Bourbon distillers stepped right up with ‘em.

Distilleries all over Kentucky and Tennessee were re-tooled to distill fuel alcohol and ferment penicillin cultures to treat wounded soldiers."
