Hello!

We are looking for info about this James B. Beam New York (stamped on the bottom) stonewear bottle. After a lot of searching about it, we're at our wits end!!

Thank you in advance!

Hi in reading "Kovels" story on the Beams, it first was owned by Jacob 1788, then his son David and next David's son Col. James B Beam who started woking in the Distillery in 1880 at age 16, He did aquire "Early Times Distillery" In 1915 the col. died,
So would have to quess your bottle between 1880 and 1915. But It never shows the Dist. being in N.Y. In later years it shows Beam was wholly owned by a subsidiary American Brands Inc.
