FEATURED LIBATION: The name Old Grand-Dad is reference to a real person. In fact, it refers to a distiller by the name of Basil Hayden who began distilling whiskey in the late 1700’s in Nelson County, KY. Old Grand-Dad series of bourbons were first bottled in 1882. It comes in two versions, an 80-proof and a 114-proof. The 114 is 57% ABV and is a straight bourbon with no age statement, so at least 4 years old.
