This is the only complete advertisement we have encountered of this image. The distillery sits on a bend of the Kentucky River at Frankfort, Kentucky with related cooperage building and warehouses. The frame and artwork are original with the print and lettering in excellent condition. The gold leaf of the border has losses but must be considered in good condition considering the fragile medium. This graphic likely dates between 1875 and 1885.
