Brown-Forman’s Old Forester Rye Single Barrel – Product Launch
  • Category – Spirits, whiskey, US, Bourbon, 50% abv
  • Available – From this week
  • Location – Available in the US
  • Price – SRP of US$79.99 per 75cl bottle

Old Forester Rye Single Barrel can be purchased at the brand’s Louisville, Kentucky distillery. The release is also available in limited quantities at selected retailers nationwide.

The barrel-strength iteration follows the 2019 release of Old Forester Rye, which according to the brand owner, was the brand’s first new recipe in nearly 150 years.

“The Old Forester Rye Single Barrel delivers on the same balanced and unique flavour profile of our 100 proof expression, only amplified and in unfiltered, raw form,” said the company’s master taster, Zackie Zykan.

In September, Brown-Forman released a limited-edition expression to commemorate Old Forester’s 150th anniversary.
