Booth's Ultra Special Dry Gin Bottled 1920s-1930s - Sealed Tin 75cl
A bottle of Booth's Ultra Special Dry Gin, sealed in the original tin produced by British Can Ltd. The tin features an illustration of part of Booth's distillery in England, as well as an image of a toast being raised at a formal dinner party.
We estimate this was bottled in the 1920s to 1930s, either during Prohibition or shortly after the repeal in 1933.
Due to the proliferation of bootleggers producing counterfeit alcohol during Prohibition, it was common for companies to sell bottles in sealed, tamper-proof tins to ensure consumer confidence in the product.
The original key to open the container is missing.
Please note there is no stated size or ABV.
