Old Forester Sleepeasy Offers A Stylish Stay On Whiskey Row


Old Forester has launched its inaugural Sleepeasy, an immersive experience on Whiskey Row in downtown Louisville. From March 1 to April 2, 2023, consumers nationwide can book a stay in the one-bedroom apartment that draws upon the brand’s 152-year history and is located adjacent to Old Forester Distillery.

The Old Forester Sleepeasy will transport guests to a simpler era with timeless classics including expertly crafted chess boards, vinyl records, and memorabilia from the brand’s archives.

Every visitor will get a personalized meet and greet with Master Taster Melissa Rift, a tour and tasting at Old Forester Distillery, and the rare opportunity to purchase limited-edition whiskies including the 117 entire Series, President’s Choice 2023, and Birthday Bourbon 2022. 

“The Sleepeasy is the ultimate experience for bourbon lovers,” said Rift. “People will receive an insider look at the world’s first bottled bourbon – and this experience will take guests through Old Forester’s unique history. And the best part – it’s all for charity.”

Proceeds from bookings will be donated to the Center for Women and Families, a non-profit that helps women and families in Louisville in crisis by providing housing, support and safety from domestic violence.

“We are so grateful to Old Forester for this generous donation and the strong message it sends about the importance of the community supporting the critical work The Center is doing every day to help individuals and families in situations that threaten their safety and well-being,” said Elizabeth Wessels-Martin, president and CEO of The Center for Women and Families. 

“Domestic violence deaths have been increasing in our area, and there is a greater need for our services than ever.,” she said. “The funding raised through this unique opportunity will help us continue to raise awareness about this crime and how to seek help, answer our crisis line 24/7, and provide safe housing and vital resources to aid our clients on their journey from victims to courageous survivors.”
