The Daily Mail in London Features New Kentucky Select Listing

As reported by The Daily Mail Online: "The sprawling Kentucky mansion built by the liquor mogul behind Jack Daniel's whiskey is now up for sale for $6 million in Harrods Creek, an exclusive neighborhood of Louisville.  'The Avish,' the stately, columned 20,000 square foot manor, was developed in 1910 by Owsley Brown and his wife, Laura Lyons. Construction on the home was completed in 1925. The name translates to 'Rocky Hill' in Gaelic, which was the name of the family's ancestral home in Ireland. Mr Brown's father, George Garvin Brown, had founded Brown-Forman, the liquor company whose brands now include Jack Daniel's, Southern Comfort and Finlandia Vodka. The home was most recently inhabited by Owsley Brown Frazier, a fourth generation member of the Brown dynasty who had served as a director on the Brown-Forman board and had been an active philanthropist in Louisville."
