Item Spotlight: Vintage Old Crow Drink Stirrers

History of Old Crow Whiskey

Dr. James C. Crow began brewing his soon-to-be-famous whiskey in Frankfurt, Kentucky in the 1830s. He originally sold whiskey to employers under the label "Crow", and called the aged bottles he sold "Old Crow."

Old Crow's logo, a black crow perched atop grains of barley, is rumored to symbolize the bridging of the North and South during the Civil War. 

The label was ultimately purchased by Jim Beam in the 1980s and what was once the leading Bourbon of the South is now a three-year-old label under a much larger brand name.
