Great seeing you and many others at Heckler’s and Keene last weekend. It’s
always been my favorite season and time for bottle outings. I was
fortunate to buy an aqua vertical Greeley’s at Heckler’s field this past
week. This goes well with my aqua Old Sachem and Pocahontas Bitters.
As promised, I’m sending you some label photos of a few of my bitters. The
label for the Niagara Star has always been one of my favorites, with the
falls being in our backyard, so to speak. The labeled Dr. Walkinshaw’s
appeared at the Rochester show a couple years ago, and I was fortunate
enough to get it. Several Walkinshaw’s bitters were dug in the Batavia, NY
area several years ago and showed up in Rochester shortly after. Not an
easy one to acquire as the “cure” collectors also seek it. My John Roots
Bitters, R-90.8, 1867 version has a poor label but I didn’t have this
bottle and grabbed it when it came out at the Keene a year ago. So, I have
included a photo of it too.
As long as I’m forwarding you some label bitters, I thought I would send
you a photo of a recent purchase of a case of 12 Warner Log Cabin
Extracts, all complete with contents. Surprising what appears now and then
at Rochester area garage sales.
