I was doing some research on Old Crow (the brand and the distillery) this weekend and I found a quote referencing the whiskey that I thought was pretty cool. This is part of an 1849 letter from Robert Letcher (Governor of KY 1840-1844) to his friend Orlando Brown, where Lechter was letting Brown know that he was sending some Old Crow whiskey to cure what was ailing him. Cowdery references this letter in Bourbon, Straight, but I had to do a little hunting to dig up the actual quote.


"That's all you need to make you well - you have been deprived of your "native victuals," and that creates a Rebellion in your abdominal regions - Old Crow will put down the insurrection."
