E. G. Booz Log Cabin Whiskey with Whitney Threaded Cap

04 March 2014

It all started a little over a year ago when I went to an auction. Usually I obtain my bottles by digging along with friends in the Tri-State area.

At the auction house, I noticed two cabins, which I thought were Clevenger Brothers. One was purple and I realized immediately that it was a reproduction. For some reason I kept gazing at the amber one because I thought something was peculiar about it. When I picked it up, I saw that it had an inside threaded whiskey applied top. Then and there I thought it was a one-of-a-kind, straight roof Whitney Glass Works E. G. Booz cabin.

So I held my breath until the auctioneer came to the area where the bottle was. I picked up the amber bottle and handed it to him. He started the bidding off at $2 dollars. I raised my hand, nobody else upped the bid so I won it. This was a nice day indeed.
