A rare bottle of 7-year-old Old Charter Bourbon, bottled at 40% ABV in the 1970s for the Italian market at the end of the 1970s. It was likely bottled in 1978 or 1979, in the period in which the US switched from imperial to metrics. The clock on the label stands at 7 o’clock, referring to the whiskey’s age. The Old Charter brand has existed since the late 1800s and is nowadays distilled at the Buffalo Trace Distillery. Before that, the brand was owned by Bernheim and Schenley, amongst others. This specific bottle has seen better times, but the contents are just as perfect as they were back in the 70s!
