As supporting information, the US Patent and Trademark Office lists
the Ancient Age logo as:
IC 033. US 049. G & S: WHISKEY. FIRST USE: 19360327. FIRST USE IN COMMERCE: 19360327
which, of course, means March 27th, 1936.
The USPTO website is a nice way to dig up information about various
old whiskey brands, when they started, and who owns/owned them.
Plus, they give you a little graphic of the logo!
