A Super Steele’s Niagara Star Bitters


A Super Steele’s Niagara Star Bitters

06 October 2015

Apple-Touch-IconAAnother incoming e-mail and some super pictures of a super bottle from Chris Eib. Groovy green glass. Did just say that? We heard from Chris last week which resulted in the “A question regarding Capuziner Bitters” post.


Hi Ferdinand, thanks for the great write-up on the Capuziner’s Bitters. Now that the mystery has been solved, I’ll be able to get some sleep. ( : Thanks for the compliment on my photography skills. I try. So, I think I have a good one for your KILLER section. This one is all about the color. No, it’s not perfect. In fact, it has a rather lengthy crack running down one of the corners and a small flake on the base. But I’m not really bothered by that, because where else are you going to find another one in THIS color?? I took a series of pics and I will leave it up to your discretion as to which photos you think are best. Although I don’t think that’s going to be an easy decision.  Thanks again and have a great day.  

Best regards, Chris
