Bourbon Learn More
Old Grand-Dad was a distiller named Basil Hayden who made his name by distilling a bourbon whiskey made with a higher percentage of rye. Basil Hayden passed along the art of distilling to his son and then, in turn, to his grandson. It was the third generation distiller, Colonel R.B. Hayden, who honored his grandfather by naming his justly famed whiskey “Old Grand-Dad.”
“Old Grand Dad“ was first bottled in 1882. The recipe for the bourbon contains more rye for a lighter, spicier flavour. It is characteried by a pleasing sweet and sour taste with woodsy, spice and caramel notes. Fun fact; during Prohibition, Old Grand-Dad was produced by a pharmaceutical company, the American Medicinal Spirits Co., and was one of the few distilled spirits permitted to be prescribed as medicine!
