TripCart's been hanging around the distilleries of Bourbon Country in Kentucky and it turns out that bottle Larry Hagman found on the beach in the classic TV show "I Dream of Jeannie" actually housed two spirits: Jim Beam and Barbara Eden. The 1964 decanter of Beam's Choice was used after the bottle had been painted with gold leaf to look more antiquated. There's a bit of controversey over who first decided to use the bottle but most evidence points to first season director Gene Nelson. Over the years the props department used several different bottles adding more ornate decoration after the show began to air in color. Appparently several bottles were used during the pilot episode's opening beach sequence.
