• c. 1910
    From the Hannis Distillery of West Virginia, USA. A pre-Prohibition 'Old Tom' style gin of the type popular in both the UK and US toward the end of the 19th Century. This type of gin was specified in many of the gin cocktails in the earliest bartender guides. 'A once in a lifetime drinking encounter to experience and wonder about.'
  • 1910
    From the Chateau de Bourg Cognac House, owned by the Marnier Lapastolle family known as the producers of Grand Marnier. A fine example of cognac produced just as the quality of vineyards had recovered from the Phylloxera epidemic of a generation before.
  • 1930s
    An extremely rare example of early pre-revolutionary Cuban rum. Probably among the first batches shipped to the USA after the repeal of Prohibition. It is unknown if this brand was connected to the 'El Chico' club in Manhattan, whose house cocktail was the classic El Presidente.
  • 1920s
    Blended by Dow's Great Clyde St., Glasgow, Scotland. A brand brought to market in the 1830s by the Samuel Dow Dynasty who once owned the 'largest bar in all of Scotland'. A beautiful example of the softer, smokier character of blended Scotch Whisky in the early 20th Century.
  • 1930s
    Hiram Walker Distillery, Windsor, Ontario, Canada. A fascinating piece of history. Walker's deluxe was and still is produced by the company famous for Canadian Club. This bottle was produced during the latter days of Prohibition and shipped to California for 'medicinal purposes'.
  • 1920s
    Everbach Distillery, Clermont, Kentucky, USA A brand that survives to this day under Heaven Hill. This whiskey was almost certainly bottled during Prohibition in the original distillery given the medical documentation attacehed to the bottle.
  • Distilled C. 1900
    A very old and rare agricole rhum originally imported to Toulouse from the French colony of Martinique. An aged example as opposed to the more common white agricoles of today. A deeply satisfying sipping rhum without equivalent in the present day.
  • Believed Distilled 1860s
    From the Hannis Distillery of West Virginia, USA Produced by the same long-lost distillery as our Hannisville Rye. Another true time capsule experience to the days of Jerry Thomas and Harry Johnson, godfathers of the cocktail. Extremely limited supply.
