Presented unfiltered and at barrel strength, the product is available nationwide and at Old Forester Distilling Co. in limited quantities.

Since the release of Old Forester Rye in 2019, fans of Old Forester have been clamoring for a barrel strength iteration. Old Forester Rye was the first new recipe from Old Forester in nearly 150 years and has quickly become a beloved expression for bartenders and consumers.
