              Founded in 1870?by George Garvin Brown, Brown-Forman Corporation has enriched the experience of life by responsibly building fine quality beverage alcohol brands.

              His original brand, Old Forester Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whisky, was America’s first bottled bourbon and remains one of Brown-Forman’s finest brands today. Geo. Garvin Brown IV, a descendant of the founder, is part of the 5th generation of Brown Family members engaged with Brown-Forman, a publicly traded, family-controlled company, and serves as the presiding Chairman of the Board.

              Brown-Forman employs more than 4,700 people worldwide with about 1,300 located in Louisville. Brown-Forman, one of the largest American-owned spirits and wine companies and among the top 10 largest global spirits companies, sells its brands in countries around the world and has offices in cities across the globe. In all, Brown-Forman has more than 25 brands in its portfolio of wines and spirits.

              For 150 years, Brown-Forman has been committed to driving sustainable growth and establishing its legacy as a thriving, family-controlled, independent beverage alcohol company. Our core purpose is Enriching Life and our ambition is Nothing Better in the Market.

              In addition to these guiding principles (learn more about our values on the second tab), our success is dependent on several strategic priorities: the breadth and depth of our portfolio and geography, the quality of our people, and the return on our investments.
