Old Sunny Brook
Full color 9 1/2" x 12 1/2" ad for their Kentucky Blended Whiskey and their Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. The ad has a picture of a couple that have gone on a picnic. The only thing visible from their picnic basket is a bottle of Old Sunny Brook, a thermos that probably contains ice and two glasses that have been filled with drinks. A shaggy dog has come over and put his paws on the shoulders of the man who is seated on the blanket while the woman laughs. I am not certain whether the dog is upset because they forgot the food or that they only brought two glasses. The ad headline claims that "People like you like Sunny Brook".

Old Taylor
Full color 10" x 13 1/2" ad which wants you to "Enjoy the best America has to offer". At the front of the picture is a glass which I must assume has Old Taylor in it. The glass is barely half filled but that is probably so that we can see more of the scene behind it. Behind it is a drawing of Niagra Falls with many people standing and enjoying the view. We are then told to "Enjoy Old Taylor 86...the premium bourbon Americans like best". We are told that America is famous for its natural wonders, as evidenced by Niagra Falls. Bourbon has a flavor that, they claim, cannot be imported and Old Taylor 86 has a genuine flavor difference. We are then told that its the most popular premium bourbon of all.

Old Taylor
Full color 9 1/2" x 13" ad for their Premium-Priced Bourbon. The ad headline says that "We can prove it's worth the extra money." and they use sections of the label to prove their point. Using the first part of the label they explain how Col. Edmund H. Taylor, Jr. was the foremost Bourbon distiller in the late 1800's, Next they explain the yellow label as the way that old Taylor made it difficult for imitators. The drawing on the label that shows where it is distilled is not a castle but near a delicious limestone spring that the Colonel discovered in 1887. The signature of the Colonel appears on each bottle as another way to avoid imitation and the last important part of the label is the words "of topmost class". This expression of another time remains because the unique methods and materials that were used are still in use even today.
