Kentucky Tavern Bourbon Ad Circa 1945

Kentucky Tavern Bourbon Ad Circa 1945

Been a while since we posted a vintage ad for everyone to enjoy. A contributor shared this one with me and I knew that everyone would appreciate the greatness of having a hidden bourbon bar in your home library. I hope everyone enjoys this Kentucky Tavern bourbon ad from 1945. And if you happen to have a really cool bar in your home we’d love to get a photo and share with other readers.

Kentucky Tavern Bourbon Ad Circa 1949

 

It’s time to start featuring some holiday themed bourbon ads from the vintage archives. Let’s kick things off with this classic from Kentucky Tavern bourbon. They didn’t just offer one holiday package but a total of 3 festive gift options.  I think the Yule Log is cool but nothing beats a mailbox with two bottles of bourbon in it.  So to the modern distilleries, if you’re listening, let’s come up with some clever holiday packing options and skip the cheap glasses that you’ve been putting into “gift packs” the last couple of decades.

Four Roses Bourbon Ad Circa 1944

Woke up this morning to the sound of freezing rain hitting my bedroom windows. All I wanted to do was stay in my warm bed and sleep through the bad weather. Unfortunately I had to get up and trudge on into work. As such I think this ad is perfect based on today’s weather and what’s expected later this evening. At least I know there’s bourbon at home waiting for me to make it through whatever Mother Nature throws my way today.

 PS – Don’t forget to read the ad text itself and its mention of rationing out stocks of prewar whiskey. It’s a fascinating look into how the industry addressed a pretty big challenge.
