What makes Coopers’ Craft Bourbon Unique?
Nearly 150 years ago, when Brown Forman began bottling bourbon, they recognized the importance of craftsmanship and the role of the wooden barrel as an essential ingredient. Since 1945 they have been raising their own new barrels; and now are the only major distiller to do so.
