Item 7.01.  Regulation FD Disclosure.

On March 16, 2006,  Brown-Forman  Corporation  issued a press release announcing
certain filings being made on behalf of some of its shareholders.  A copy of the
press release is furnished herewith as Exhibit 99.1.

This report contains statements that constitute "forward-looking  statements" as
defined under U.S. federal securities laws. Generally,  words such as "expects,"
"will" and  similar  expressions  identify a  forward-looking  statement,  which
speaks only as of the date the statement is made.  Except as required by law, we
do not intend to update or revise any forward-looking  statements,  whether as a
result of new  information,  future  events,  or otherwise.  We believe that the
expectations and assumptions with respect to our forward-looking  statements are
reasonable.  But by their nature,  forward-looking  statements involve known and
unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that in some cases are out of our
control.  These factors could cause our actual results to differ materially from
Brown-Forman's historical experience or our present expectations or projections.
