The Spirit of Old Kentucky by Frank B. Thompson

Saturday, January 24th, 2015

I’ve a feeling that this booklet probably dates back to the 1960s though there’s no date on it anywhere.  Glenmore Gin, though, which is mentioned here, didn’t hit the market until 1959, so . . .

You can trace the roots of this distillery all the way back to 1849, but it was 1924 before Frank B. Thompson took charge of the company, alongside his brother, James P. Thompson, and the Thompson family retained control of the company right through until 1991 when it was bought by Guinness.  See more about Glenmore Distilleries HERE
