Four Nice Bitters from Greg Bair
Old Sachem & Greeley's Bitters Barrel's - Bair Collection
It is always nice to get an email and pictures from someone who has recently found and/or purchased some new bottles. I think these bottles and pictures are quite nice from Greg Bair!
Managed to acquire these in the last week. Greeley’s is vertically embossed and glass is much thicker on the left than the right, Old Sachem’s is pontiled….was surprised to see that! Labeled bitters is a Warner’s safe cure with a period label….was found in the wall of a house in Watertown, Mass. last week. 4 log Drakes is just a super crisp example….nothing too great, just a really clean one. Just wanted to share.
Take care, Greg
