Old Crow Kentucky Straight Bourbon 1980s / with Commemorative Plate

Old Crow is was one of Kentucky's earliest bourbon brands, created in the 1830's by Scottish immigrant, James C. Crow, Master Distiller at the Old Oscar Pepper distillery. He pioneered the use of scientific methods to ensure continuity in the quality of his whiskey. The brand was purchased by W.A. Gaines who opened the Old Crow distillery. Both were then procured by National Distillers during prohibition, who produced the brand until 1987 when they were purchased by Jim Beam who shut the distillery and moved production to their Clermont facility.

This is the National Distillers era version, bottled 2 years before the Beam takeover, in 1985 at their Old Grand-dad distillery. The bottle is part of a series which included commemorative plates depicting their historic distillery portfolio.

The 1970s and 1980s represented a period in the US known as the "Glut Era," when warehouses were over-stocked with whiskey, and many barrels of better-aged than usual bourbon was often dumped into these standard expressions. They are well worth trying.

Italian import.
