And that is why new bottle design features a signature on the label as did the original 1870 bottle. The signature is that of Louisville native George Garvin Brown, a pharmaceutical salesman who recognized the need for a bourbon of consistent high quality. The custom in his day was to ship whisky in barrels and pour it into decanters on the bar. Once it left the barrel, each establishment had the option of diluting the whisky as it wished. To ensure the quality of his bourbon, George Garvin Brown was the first to put it in sealed glass bottles. That way, no one could water down Old Forester or otherwise compromise it. Quite an innovation in 1870!Then George guaranteed its quality with his personal written guarantee and his handwritten signature, which he boldly displayed on the Old Forester label.
