Long Description:
The following information comes from Wikipedia (visit link)

Old Grand-Dad is the name of a bourbon whiskey from Nelson County, Kentucky. The company was created by Raymond B. Hayden and named after his grandfather Basil Hayden, Sr., a well known distiller during his lifetime who is depicted on the front of each bottle.

The Hayden family's first commercial distillery was created in 1840 and the Whiskey has been in production since that time -- despite several changes of ownership. During prohibition, the company produced "medicinal whiskey" for sick, blind, and lame patients.

Today, Old Grand-Dad is one of the ten best selling straight whiskies.
