There’s another reason to visit Old Forester Distilling Co.: the bar. The downtown Louisville distillery is set to open George’s Bar to visitors this week.
Named for founder George Garvin Brown (who marketed the first bottled bourbon), the bar will be a part of the existing tour experience as well as a hotspot during special events.
Old Forester completed their Whiskey Row Distillery this June in the same building that housed the brand prior to Prohibition. Visitors to the 70,000 square foot distillery will see the entirety of the bourbon crafting process (including a 44-foot Vendome Copper still) as well as see the only working cooperage inside a distillery.
