In the 1970s, Old Crow was a National Distillers brand. Back then this legendary bourbon whisky was distilled and bottled at the Old Crow Distillery in Frankfurt in Kentucky.

Today it is part of the huge stable of brands owned by Jim Beam. Jim Beam took it over in 1987 and effectively abandoned the old distillery.

Old Crow was a hugely popular bourbon whisky throughout 1950s, 1960s and 1970s and featured often in popular culture. Writers like Hunter S Thompson and Mark Twain reportedly love it and included many references to it in their works.

The name also has a lot of significance in bourbon whisky history. It is named after Dr James Crow, a Kentucky distiller who died in 1856. He is considered by many to be the father of bourbon because of his development of production methods that ensured the quality of the bourbon he made was consistent. This included developments in the use of the sour-mash process.
