Some rewarding shovel work.
That was one HECK of a digging day! Stuff of dreams . . .Interestingly, I dug what I believe to be my oldest bottle the same day as the Drakes. Didn’t realize it was pontil Ed til I cleaned it up View attachment 215140View attachment 215141
It’s not a very robust bottle, noticeably lighter than the other stuff I’ve been finding. Glad it survived
It was a Bitters Bottle. Bitters originated in England and was a blend of roots that tasted bitter. Was considered a medicine. Once arriving in America, "we" started adding alcohol. Some brands wound up being 120 proof and became very popular.What I was saying is, what did they put in it? Pine oil, whiskey, thyme, sage, or what? Lol
