Old Grand-Dad

Old Grand Dad First bottled in 1882, Old Grand-Dad is a brand of bourbon whiskey from a high rye mash created by Raymond B. Hayden and named after his grandfather Basil Hayden, Sr., a well known distiller whose bust is depicted on the label of each bottle.

Bottled in Bond:
The Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897 was a reaction to adulteration of spirits, providing consumers a guarantee of a whiskey's authenticity. For a bourbon to be “bottled in bond” means the whiskey is the product of one distillation season, one distiller, and one distillery, while being sold at 100 proof and having aged at least four years.
