Old Overholt Straight Rye Whiskey has been in production for over 200 years now, which is pretty impressive to say the least. This bottle was produced in the 1960s, so while it might not be centuries old, it’s still a neat antique.
These are the three principles by which Abraham Overholt (1784-1870) lived and made his whiskey. He’s the father of American distilling and took uncompromising pride in his product — a legacy which continues today.
Old Overholt® is the oldest of The OldsTM, a relic you can drink. This famous Straight Rye Whiskey has a distinctive ﬂavor and appeal that, after Prohibition, made it the most popular spirit in the country.
Agreeable means you get along. And Old Overholt® does just that. It’s renowned for its outstanding mixability in classic cocktails like the Old Style Manhattan (look it up). The one and only Old Overholt® is 80 Proof and aged 3 years.
Old Overholt is special in that it’s the only Rye that still follows a traditional Monongahela (Pennsylvania) Whiskey recipe, and the four keystones connecting each band in the label’s frame of rye grain spikes pay tribute to it’s origination in the “Keystone State”. It’s also one of the oldest consistent styles of whiskey in America.
