View Full Version : Grommes & Ullrich

This name came up once before and no one had an answer then either. Since the distributor is named but not the distiller it sounds like a distributor bottling, i.e., a brand created by a distiller exclusively for that distributor.
This is an old one and probably meaningless at this point . I only bumped it for one thing. Shouldn't the PreWar1936 label be a clue , come on wouldn't it be the same as a coin dated 550 B.C? http://www.straightbourbon.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/confused.gif
Bobby, I hear what you're saying, but it is probably marketing-speak. The bottle/label was made post-war, but they were saying, in effect, "This is the good stuff that was made before the war, before rationing made products be bad from necessity."
I'm almost sure that I replied to this post earlier today, but I don't see it now. We may have a bug to report to Jim when he returns.
Did anyone else see my reply?
