I am 78 and the 3rd generation and current caretaker of a fairly extensive collection of bottles. This bottle has been in our family for over 100 years and was acquired by my Grandfather. I believe it to be original; however, thought I would put it out for discussion.

I'm no expert on reproductions--and the Booz bottle has been reproduced--but your example certainly looks genuine to me. The crude applied lip, bubbles in the glass, some sagging of panels and bit of base wear evident lead me that direction.

I'd be interested in seeing other opinions.

If it has been in family custody for more than 100 years I'm pretty sure it pre-dates the EG Booz replicas. There are those who can identify an original from a repro from slight differences in the molds. I'm not one of those lucky ones.

There is a discussion on this in the reproduction bottles and jars section on this site. It is on the fifth page entitled How to distinguish E. G. Booz originals from Clevenger Bros. reproductions.

The one thing giving me doubt is the fact that the S in WHISKEY isn't centered directly below the C in OLD CABIN, I hope I'm wrong...

The real Booz is on the bottom, look at the S below the C and the K under the A, very different

After talking to an expert your bottle is a Clevenger "reproduction" of the original, still a great bottle...
