Old Fitzgerald '1849' 10 Year Old Pint 1970s / Stitzel-Weller

This is an early 1970s bottling of the 10 year old '1849' expression of the Old Fitzgerald brand. This was produced at the Old Fitzgerald Distillery, previously known as Stitzel-Weller, by Somerset Imports who had acquired the distillery and its brands in 1972. Bottled early in the decade, this bottle will contain Stitzel-Weller bourbon from the much-lauded Van Winkle era.

The expression is named 1849 after the year in which the W.L. Weller company was formed.

The distillery eventually closed in 1992, and was purchased by United Distillers (Diageo) in 1994, who reverted its name back to Stitzel-Weller. They sold the Old Fitzgerald brand sold to Heaven Hill in 1999, who still produce the 1849 as a premium product today.
