Thought I would start a thread on items that were given only to the Jack Daniel Distillery Employees. Over the years, I was just wondering how many of these there were. These could have been bottles, decanters, letters, retirement gifts, etc.

If you have any, post a picture of them. I think it will be interesting to see.

I will get it started by posting these two decanters we got a few days ago.

They are from 1996 & 1997.

Great idea for a thread Mike - I love the employee items. I do believe there is a glass ice bucket to match that decanter and jar above. I only have the decanter myself though.

here are a few items that I have ....

Here are some ingredient bottles I found.  A retired Jack employee told me that they could have been for display, like a salesman display. Or, when certain employees retire, depending on what part of the plant they worked in, they would receive these as a retirement gift.

I am going to guess that this calendar was only given to employees.  I do not know who would want it outside of Jack Daniels.  Well, except me.     :D

 

Here is the rest of the calendar if you care to go through it.
