Based in Louisville, Ky., Old Forester is a pioneering company in the bourbon industry with numerous historic “firsts” to its name. In 1870, Old Forester became the first company to sell bourbon in sealed bottles, not barrels. The company went on to make history with the first double barreled bourbon in 1910, the first single barrel bourbon in the industry in 1962 and the first vintage-dated bourbon in the industry with its Old Forester Birthday Bourbon named in honor of founder George Garvin Brown.
RHOOT MAN BEVERAGE COMPANY & TITO’S HANDMADE VODKA
Wednesday, October 19 — 5:30 p.m.
Savannah’s own Rhoot Man Beverage Company offers a popular line of shrubs, or all-natural beverage enhancers that pair perfectly with Tito’s Handmade Vodka, which is produced at the oldest legal distillery in Texas.
