Black Head Rum Bottled Early 20th Century - W S Wood & Co. 50cl
A bottle of Black Head Rum, Kingston, Jamaica. This was produced by W S Wood & Co. for French importer Cazenove. This comes in a dark green glass bottle wrapped in straw, with a metal capsule. The paper wrapping states that the bottle has a 'glass stopper'.
We estimate this was bottled in the early 20th century.
There is no size or ABV stated on the label, but this appears to be a 50cl bottle.
Please see images for fill level and label condition. Note damage to the labels and the paper wrapping.
The fill level is to approximately 2.5cm above the top of the label.
