BourbonBlog.com toasts to the Old Fashioned, the original Louisville cocktail, invented over a century ago.
It was invented at the Pendennis Club, a private club founded in 1881 in Louisville, Kentucky.
It is also fitting that we toast this week to George Garvin Brown, the founder of Brown-Forman Corporation as his birthday is in September.
The annual release of the Old Forester Birthday Bourbon celebrates his birthday every year!
We’ll have more Old Fashioned Recipes and a chance for you to wish George Garvin Brown a special birthday message soon on BourbonBlog.com!
