    Modern for sure..I'd say 80's or 90's.

    Yep. She thinks in the late 80's, but guess she was wondering where from. The FIL liked to travel and camp, but have no idea where it came from. Also, wondering value....should she put it in the safe, or let the granddaughter use it for dolls genie bottle.

    Wiki says calvert extra is "
    a
    Blended whiskey
    produced in
    Clermont, Kentucky
    and owned by
    Luxco
    which is headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri." It's a rather short Wiki entry and doesn't give us origins or anything like that. There's a print ad from 1967 on google images showing basically your bottle with a slightly different label. My eye says your label is just a little older than that label but that's a total WAG on my part...

    More like genie bottle than lock and key item.

    Ok. Thank you. Found similar myself on google, but the starbursts on the front are missing. Granddaughter will be tickled.

    Ok. Pic of bottom. I wonder if the "55" is really "ss"?

    I think 65 is quite likely the date on that one.
