Rare Pre Prohibition Whiskey Barrell Top from J A Whithers Distillery
Branding Iron used for stamping/branding Barrel Top
According to the article above the distillery produced about 2 barrels of whiskey a day. Considering it would have only been used twice a day, this could very well have been the only branding iron used at the distillery.
