Whiskey Tasting Dinner on the Diner
June 8, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Old Forester is a brand of Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey produced by the Brown-Forman Corporation. It is officially the longest running Bourbon on the market today. It was first bottled and marketed in 1870 by the former pharmaceutical salesman turned bourbon-merchant George Garvin Brown. During the Prohibition period from 1920 to 1933, it was one of only 10 brands authorized for lawful production.
