Hersperedina Barrel Whiskey






Circa 1860-1870 Gasoline-Yellow Barrel Whiskey - Hersperedina Bagley Un Barril

Here is a beautifally colored barrel-shaped whiskey bottle that I learned is probably from Brazil. But it's surprisingly like an American barrel bitters from the same period. The color rocks - a blend of apricot and yellow that many refer to as "gasoline" amber. A similar one (with base embossing) sold at Heckler auctions in Feb. 2024, but I haven't seen this variant. It has nice glass character and old style large font embossing.

This is bottle is in the middle of the pic below - shows the color compared to other amber bottles. But this color is hard to catch accurately.
