product Details

Old Grand-Dad 1968 Bottled in Bond 5 Year Old 100 Proof

Featuring the image of Basil Hayden, Old Grand-dad is a classic of the bourbon world. 

Distilled and bottled by National Distillers at Old Grand-dad distillery in 1968 and bottled in bond in the Fall of 1973. Bottled in Bond bourbon is required to state both the distillation and bottling site on the label, as well as be 100 US proof.

National Distillers was born out of the American Medicinal Spirits Company, the brainchild of Otto Wathen who used it to keep bourbon production alive during Prohibition. Old Grand-dad is the enduring testament to his achievement.

Jim Beam purchased the brand in 1987 and moved its production to their Beam distillery. The Old Grand-dad site is now silent, operating solely as a warehouse facility.
