Old Crow Bourbon Whiskey

American Whiskey Bourbon

Old Crow Bourbon Whiskey

Old Crow® Bourbon is named for the inventor of the sour mash process, Dr. James C. Crow. In fact, in 1835 Old Crow® bourbon was the first bourbon to begin using this process that today, has become a standard in the bourbon industry.

During the Civil War, regiments from both the North and the South frequently received rations of bourbon. Some historians like to argue that General U.S. Grant received more than his fair share, although his drinking has always been exaggerated. Legend has it that after the battle of Shiloh, in which the Union suffered staggering losses, Grant’s critics came out in legion and went to President Lincoln and demanded Grant’s head, charging that he lacked leadership and drank too much. Lincoln, always a Grant supporter, was reported to have said, “Find out what kind of whiskey he drinks, and send a barrel to my other generals.” Grant, of course, drank Old Crow®.
