    • Old Crow is a low-priced brand of Kentucky-made straight bourbon distilled by Beam Suntory, which also produces Jim Beam and several other brands of whiskey. The current Old Crow product uses the same mash bill and yeast as Jim Beam but is aged for a shorter period of time. The Old Crow brand has a venerable history as one of Kentucky's earliest bourbons.
