Enriching Life Since 1870
In 2020, Brown-Forman celebrates its 150th Anniversary. It’s a year of stories, events, and gatherings to reflect and unify for the road ahead.
It’s an exciting time to recognize the company’s historical achievements, as well as appreciate and share in its legacy. Brown-Forman was founded in Louisville, Kentucky in 1870 by George Garvin Brown, when he became the first person to sell whiskey in sealed, glass bottles. Old Forester Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey became the flagship brand for a company that would flourish for the next 150 years.
This founding commitment to “nothing better in the market” holds true today, for our company, our brands, and our people.
