Look at this Color for this Hostetter’s Bitters!
07 July 2011
Jim Bender sent me this picture of a legendary Hostetter’s Stomach Bitters bottle. I had heard about this boy but I had never seen a picture. Kind of like a Yeti sighting huh? Even this picture is mysterious! Anyway, does anyone have any more information or pictures? Bet Richard Siri knows about this bottle.
I sent you this photo a few days ago but it must have gotten lost. I first saw this bottle about 20 years ago at a show here in the Northeast. The color is best called pink with a touch of purple and puce. The photo makes it look more purple than pink. When you said at the meeting if there where a Hostetter’s shoot-out Richard would most likely win I would tell this guy that. Enjoy the photo and I will tell the story about the bottle next time I see you.
