World's Largest Bottle of Booze

The World's Largest Bottle of Booze was just one of many attractions seen on a day trip to Louisville.

This is not in a great neighborhood. My husband was worried about getting carjacked.

I'm new to wacky and strange water tower hunting, but this was probably the coolest I have seen yet!

Booze Bottle Water Tower

World's Largest Bottle of Booze

In Louisville, not far from the World's Largest Bat, stands this old water tower, fashioned to look like a bottle of "Old Forester" made by the Brown-Forman Corporation. "Old Forester" is America's first bottled bourbon -- before this, bourbon was sold in wooden kegs only. There is no mention of this historical fact... Far as that goes, there is no mention of anything here, and the plant is not open for tours. Nevertheless, this is as good as it gets if you photograph unique water towers... and it's a perfect match for the Brook's Catsup tower in Collinsville!
