The Legend of Dr. James C. Crow and His Whiskey




Whiskey Lore show

Summary: Amazing, for all of the people who talk about him in the bourbon industry, Dr. James C. Crow's life is somewhat of a mystery. Born in Inverness, Scotland in 1789, he moved to America and landed in Kentucky. When people say his name, they usually talk about two things, his work with the sour mash process and his Old Crow whiskey. But his influence on the bourbon industry can't be understated. Yet there are no biographies about his life. I'll explore his life in this episode and introduce his brand.
