It's an iconic landmark for Brown Forman, and I seriously doubt that they'd ever agree to part with it, but it's got to be over $100,000 -- maybe twice that.
Oh, you meant the Kentucy Queen
Normally anywhere from ten to twenty bucks, but with the label all chewed up like that, probably more like five.
Not enough to pay for shipping, but good yard-sale material. As a bottle, the glass is pretty; you would probably do better to soak the label off, clean up the glass, fill with colored beads or layers of colored sand and sell it as an artwork on its own.
