Remember when I found a bottle of Sunny Brook bourbon from the mid 80s? Well here is a related anecdote about a bottle of Sunny Brook from the 40s.
The day after Pearl Harbor, Gerald Baden's father, Hank, went out and bought the bottle of 86-proof whiskey and brought it to his Pure Oil service station in downtown St. Paul.
Old Sunny Brook, the Pearl Harbor Day bottle of straight bourbon whiskey bottled in Louisville, Ky., "was the old standby," he said. "It was pretty good whiskey."
Pretty good indeed.
