Ulysses S. Grant May Have Drank This Bourbon Brand By The Glassful
It was rumored that Ulysses S. Grant, the 18th President of the United States, favored a pour of Old Crow Bourbon when he was drinking.
Old Crow, an 80-proof bourbon with a golden tone that looks a little like apple juice, has an alleged history of a celebrity following from back in the day.
The lore of Grant’s love for this spirit has been documented on Jim Beam’s website and passed around in books like Gerald Carson’s "The Social History of Bourbon."
