Gallery Label: 
"E.G. Booz's Old Cabin Whiskey" was originally made for one Edmund G. Booz by the Whitney Glass Works of Glassboro, New Jersey around 1860. It is thought that the 1840 date refers to the age of the whiskey in the bottle. At his death, Booz had 25 cases of Cabin Whiskey in stock, valued at six dollars a case or fifty cents per bottle. That the Booz bottle was continued after his death is suggested by an example with a stopper inscribed with an 1875 date. The famous bottle was reproduced in the 20th century by the Clevenger Brothers Glass Works; this example, in a color not known to have been made by the Whitney Glass Works, appears to be a Clevenger reproduction.
