“The Avish,” as the estate is called is in Louisville’s exclusive Harrods Creek neighborhood.

The estate was constructed between 1910 and 1924 by Owsley Brown, son of George Garvin Brown, who first came up with the idea of selling bourbon in sealed bottles.

The Brown-Forman company now has over 2,000 employees and 25 brands including Jack Daniel’s, Southern Comfort, Herradura Tequila and Finlandia Vodka.

Fourth generation Brown, 77-year-old Owsley Brown Frazier, was the most recent owner of the property. He died last year at the age of 77, and his heirs — his two daughters — have decided to sell.
