The annual release of Old Forester’s Birthday Bourbon marks an important moment on the calendar for bourbon collectors. This year, however, the celebration looks a bit different.
Old Forester enthusiasts will no longer be able to simply purchase the coveted bottle at the distillery, according to an emailed Aug. 12 press release. A nationwide sweepstake will instead give select individuals the opportunity to purchase the 2022 expression of the release. A bottle will then be reserved for each winner at the Louisville distillery.
