Granville Whiskey Decanter Museum

 

   Historic Granville- Tennessee Mayberry Town has a history dating back to the early 1900’s of famous whiskey makers connected to the small riverboat town.  Its history has been taken to another level with the recent donation of approximately 2,000 Jim Beam Whiskey Decanters by Charles Barrett of Watertown.  Charles and his late wife, Betty, began collecting bottles in 1979,

 

  Jim Beam Distillery began filling their whiskey into ornamental bottles in 1955 with the creation of a bowling pin and a porcelain ash tray. Because of the popularity, the decanters were produced in fifteen categories: Wheels, Clubs and Conventions, Casino, Centennial, Organizations Customer, Executive, Foreign, People, Opera, Political, Regal China, Sports, States, Trophy, Glass and the Collectors’ Edition.  You will find decanters from each category in Granville Whiskey Decanter Museum.  The company later purchased Regal China Company and manufactured the decanters till the 1990’s.

 

   The Granville Whiskey Decanter Museum opened on May 1, 2021 and is located on Clover Street beside the Mayberry - I Love Lucy Museum.
