Old Crow 1964 Bottled in Bond 5 Year Old 86 Proof 40 oz
Old Crow is one of Kentucky's earliest bourbon brands, created in the 1830's by Scottish immigrant, James C. Crow, Master Distiller at the Old Oscar Pepper distillery. He pioneered the use of scientific methods to ensure continuity in the quality of his whiskey. The brand was purchased by W.A. Gaines who opened the Old Crow distillery. Both were then procured by National Distillers during prohibition, who produced the brand until 1987 when they were purchased by Jim Beam who shut the distillery and moved production to their Clermont facility.
This was distilled in the Spring of 1964 and bottled in Spring 1969. Bottled in Bond for export, this was not required to be bottled at the same 100 proof as a domestic market version.
