Jack Daniels
Black and white 10" x 12" ad for their Smooth Sippin' Tennessee Whiskey. The picture at the top of the page shows a man wearing overalls, a plaid shirt and a hat and he is sitting on a drum which is one of three. The ad says that "At Jack Daniels Distillery, men take pride in a whiskey-making tradition that calls for moving slowly". In the next paragraph they tell just what is involved in making whiskey their way. Seeping it through room-high mellowing vats and then waiting while their whiskey gains more smoothness in charred oak barrels. They say that "there are times when it looks like we're hardly working".

Jim Beam
Black and white 9 1/2" x 13 1/2" ad that shows that someone has come home from shopping and brought two bags in. The man, supposedly, has opened up the small bag and found a bottle of Jim Beam Bourbon Whiskey. The other bag, the one with several pieces of fruit, a jar of something and a box, remains untouched. The headline says "Surprise" and, to me, the biggest surprise is that no one is left around the bag. The text says that "Jim Beam has pleasantly surprised people since 1795". They ask if you want to know what "Beam's secret" is, they reply that it's a secret. They tells us that it's the "World's finest Bourbon - since 1795".
