1867 Sour Mash Barrel






1867 Dated Sour Mash Barrel - Chapin & Gore, Chicago - Hawley Glass Co, PA
This bottle catches any light on the shelf and hods attention with it's splashy orangeness. It has many other things going for it too - the 1867 sour mash embossing is on a raised shield shape, plus shoulder and base embossing. It also has nice crude character with twisting in the neck glass. The threaded stopper fits fine but I doubt it's original since it has a London address - probably from an English port or ginger beer, but this bottle is never found with a stopper. You'll love it!
