Since you are a bitters guy, I thought you’d get a kick out of this picture illustrating how many undamaged Doyles Hop Bitters I pulled out of this hole! Too bad he wasn’t fond of Indian Queen or Kellys Bitters! – Jack Klotz

Dear Editor or Journalist –

Attached is a press release with accompanying images for Auction #67, a two-part online auction event planned for November 27th and January 24th, 2020, by American Bottle Auctions (www.americanbottle.com), based in Sacramento, Calif. Headlining the two sales will be the legendary Ken Fee collection of mostly Western bitters bottles, to include a 150-year-old blue Cassin’s Grape Brandy Bitters bottle so rare that for years many doubted its very existence. Many of the bottles in the Fee collection are outstanding examples that should bring a few hundred dollars to many thousands of dollars. Internet bidding is through www.americanbottle.com. If you need additional information about this auction, you may call Jeff Wichmann at 800-806-7722; or, you can email him at info@americanbottle.com.
Thanks, and best regards,
Ken Hall
