While clearing out a family estate, I happened across this unopened bottle of Sherwood Whiskey with an Acker, Merrall & Condit Co. label.

The label continues with an address:
Fa(u?)ncy Grocers & Wine Merchants
220 & 222 N. Charles Street
As the label continues around to the right, it states:
This package contains
2 Pint of Whiskey
Proof 90, which has been inventoried or tax-
paid under the act of October 3, 1917.
Date 12 - 5 - 17
Acker, Merrall & Condit Co.
The “2” and “12-5-17” are hand written.
Owner of bottle was born in 1917, so assume it was a gift to his parents if date of 12-5-17 is actual bottling date.
Any information that you might be able to supply would be extremely welcomed.
