This is a bourbon brand named after John Thomson Street Brown, who alongside his half-brother, George Garvin Brown, founded the now illustrious Brown-Forman company. John's involvement in that firm was short-lived however, and after a disagreement with George he struck out on his own  to form what would eventually become JTS Brown & Sons, after several of his progeny grew up to join him in business. It was actually the the JTS Brown & Sons company that built the Old Prentice distillery in Lawrenceburg, which is now better known as Four Roses, and one of the Kentucky distilleries on the National Register of Historic Buildings for its distinctive mission style architecture.

The JTS Brown company was eventually sold to the Ripy Brothers in 1955, who produced it at their distillery in Lawrenceburg (now Wild Turkey) before selling it on to Heaven Hill in the 1970s. It was Heaven Hill who distilled and bottled this version in 2004.
