Cream of Kentucky is a historic bourbon brand. It was first introduced in 1888, and reintroduced by Schenley after Prohibition. The bourbon was distilled at the James E. Pepper Distillery until it closed in 1958. Production then moved to the George T. Stagg Distillery (now known as Buffalo Trace). This large imperial quart bottle of Cream of Kentucky was bottled in 1971 at 86 proof. It has cool measuring units on the back of the bottle, so you can see there us really one imperial quart inside the bottle! The back of the gold foil in the neck shows some wear caused by the ages.
