Recently acquired this from a family member.
Not many of these around.
These were specifically made by Brown-Forman for a few immediate family members after Jess's death in 1957.
A nice tribute to one of the best Master Distillers Jack Daniel Distillery ever had.

You think Jess Motlow was a better master distiller as Jack himself?

Great book to have!

Beth & I got a call earlier in the week from a family member of the family who bought the Jess Motlow house & farm when he passed away in 1957. They have owned it since 1957 and are ready to sell it. They have the land (546 acres) listed with a realtor and are having an estate sale this weekend to sell all of the personal property in the house. They asked us if we would help appraise the antiques in the house. We said YES, YES, YES because I have always wanted to go in the house.
Keep in mind when Mr. Jess passed away, the Motlow family sold 95% of the belongings in the house. The only things in the house that were Mr. Jess's are a couple of bedroom suites and a few dishes. (no Jack Daniel bottles, jugs, or memorabilia)
We spend nearly all day in the house digging through things. It was fun, but rare, valuable, or historical items were just not to be found.
We did get some good pictures of the house.

The house is really in bad need of repairs.

The old smokehouse, stone grill, and underground storm cellar.
The house was built in the early 1800's.

The family member who called us said they can remember their grandparents telling them when Jack Daniel was toward the end of his life, he would come every day on his horse & buggy to eat lunch with Mr. Jess. After they would eat, they would take a nap on this back porch before they went back to the Distillery.

That's all the pictures I took.
By the way....the price of the house & farm is $1.9 million.

Thanks for the pics Mike. Beautiful house but like you said, definitely needs to be renovated.

Would be great to have such a money and another million for renewal :)
