A short course in Bonded Bourbon.

[[label]] First lesson: Bonded Bourbon is so unique that it took an act of Congress (in 1897) to establish the standards for Old Grand-Dad and other Bonded whiskeys. [[/label]]

[[label]] 100 is perfect. Bonded Bourbon must be 100 proof. No more. No less. [[/label]]

[[label]] Final exam. You need only one sip to recognize the clearly superior quality and taste of Old Grand-Dad. Cheers! [[/label]]

[[label]] Old Grand-Dad Bonded is authentic Kentucky sour-mash Bourbon, made with pure limestone water, the finest grains, and aged in new charred-oak barrels. [[/label]]

[[label]] Only Bonded whiskeys have a green tax stamp. It’s your guarantee that the whiskey is at least four years old. Old Grand-Dad Bonded is always aged longer. [[/label]]
