Old Overholt 1936 Bottled in Bond Rye Quart

The Old Overholt brand is a legend in the world of American whisky, established all the way back 1810. This bottle was distilled way back in 1936 at the Large distillery in Pennsylvania.

The Large distillery was best known for its Monongahela Rye, a national brand in the US until it was removed from the shelves, along with may others by the prohibition act of 1920. During prohibition, a company called the American Medicinal Spirits Co, run by Otto Wathen, acquired a number of distilleries and brands with which to bottle whiskey using its medicinal license. Distilling new whiskey was banned, so the American Medicinal Spirts Co used their increasing financial muscle (backed up by the reincarntion of the infamous Whiskey Trust, now called National Distillers) to consolidate much of America's whiskey.

After the repeal of Prohibition, National Distillers took over the AMS Co completely, and continued to bottle the Old Overholt brand for much of the 20th century.

Old Overholt still exists today, produced alongside Old Grand-dad by Jim Beam, who acquired both of 'The Olds' from National Distillers in 1987.
