O.F.C. Rebottled Medicinal, Bonded, 1916-1926

This is a bottle that was likely originally packaged as a medicinal pint, but later was rebottled in regular bourbon garb. The giveaway is the do not refill warning on the glass, which didn’t begin until after prohibition.

This is a pint sold at a drug store during prohibition. These bottles came in cardboard boxes to make them more presentable at the pharmacy. Notice the very cool and unique “cap remover.”

Jewish Whisky Company Whisky Jewbilee, 750ml, 2014

The Jewish Whisky company started putting out an annual limited-release bottle starting in 2013, with a 15 year barrel proof Heaven Hill bourbon. The 2014 version is a blended whiskey created with Dave Perkins of High West, consisting of 8 yr bourbon, 6 yr rye, and 12 yr light whiskey. I love the packaging on this bottle! I wish more companies would think outside the box and make a label that looks modern. This bottle also has a novel clear glass cap that uses a clear plastic insert to seal it. Very cool.
