Old Fitzgerald Prime 8yr, 86.6pf, “First Edition” Book Box, 1/2 pint ~1964

When Pappy was alive and running Stitzel-Weller he wouldn’t allow any bourbon to be bottled under 100 proof because he didn’t like shipping water around the country, despite many other companies releasing lower-proof editions. Once he died, however, the accountants won out and the Prime line was introduced as a lower-tier offering. This is the first edition, in a neat faux-book box.
