Eagle Rare 1978 Old Prentice Lawrenceburg 10 Year Old 101 Proof
These early bottles were distilled at the Four Roses distillery in Lawrenceburg before the label was acquired by the Sazerac company in the late 1980s.
The Four Roses distillery was built in Lawrenceburg in 1910 by JTS Brown & Sons. Known back then as the Old Prentice, it is one of the Kentucky distilleries on the National Register of Historic Buildings for its distinctive Spanish mission-style architecture. It was re-opened in 1933 after the repeal of Prohibition, passing into the hands of Seagram in 1946, who moved the production of their Four Roses brand there and eventually renamed the distillery after it.
