I'm not sure if it was the same in the US, but one of the reasons that Prohibition here was considered a failure was that doctors were free to prescribe liquor for "medicinal" reasons which were broad enough that practically anyone who wanted it would qualify. We never got the same level of organized crime problems that the US did as a result of Prohibition because everyone just went out and got prescriptions for as much medical-grade whiskey as they wanted!Great Bottles!! I have the Wild Cherry but its not as nice as yours. Mine has that nasty staining.
I was looking on line and stumbled across a category of some medicinal bottles. Then I found out that they were to be used for MEDICINAL purposes, but were actually bottles that contained whiskey and were produced during the PROHIBITION ERA. The ones I thought were the coolest were the bottles that were used by the Frankfort Distillery in Kentucky. They have spiders and spiders webs embossed in their glass. And there are variations in them that I could see without really looking into them with a magnifying glass.
