This item was retrieved from my Grandfather's basement. When he found something he liked or knew it would no longer be made, he would buy a case to have on hand. Overtime, his collection grew quite large and at many times he has forgot what was down t As they have grown old with age, my grandparents asked me to help them clean their basement. Their thank you to me was a large quantity of liquor they had in storage. Many times I have multiples of bottles, but not always. I have been told by collectors that many of the bottles I have are no longer available.

ALL BOTTLES ARE SOLD AS IS.

This bottle is unique and very interesting! I just recently sold another bottle, search my completed auctions if interested.

The labels are in great condition with the exception of the front label which is missing a small portion on the front, as seen in the photo.
