Dickel Tennessee - Souvenir Bottle commemorating reopening of George Dickel Distillery - Sour Mash Drinking Whiskey

This has to be one of the most unique, not to mention VERY rare, booze bottles that I've ever encountered. It's marked "27 Years of Stubbornness But We Made It". The side (vertically) is marked Dickel Tennessee First Bottling October 1964 - 1/4 Gallon - One Quart. It has a State of Florida Tax Stamp still on it. The federal tax stamp is still on it, but most of it is unreadable. The main label on it says : "Special Bottling For (t is a place for a name to be written) - The 1st Bottling of Tennessee Dickel - Distilled and Bottled at George A. Dickel Original Site, Cascade Hollow, Tenn. - We waited 27 long years before we made a drop, so that we could distill Dickel's famous sour mash Tennessee drinking whiskey at the original site, using the same soft limestone water used by George Dickel back in the 1870s. Taste and enjoy this smooth whiskey as we tennesseeans do."

Real leather handle strap and base. Wood top. The cork is broken in half. Half is still in the neck, and the other half is still on the top. T are no chips or cracks in the glass, and the leather is in good vintage condition. The bottle was stored in a cellar for about 40 years and is in desperate need of a cleaning. It has a filmy residue - sort of oily & a bit sticky. I'm not going to attempt to clean it and risk permanent damage of some sort. If a collector wants to take the time to properly clean it, then they would have a truly majestic, extremely hard to find, display piece. The bottle is 15" from top to bottom, and 4 3/4" in diameter at the base.
