I'm sitting in front of a sealed gift box of "Pre-War distilled in 1936 Grommes and Ullrich Black Label Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Bottled Exclusively for Grommes and Ullrich, Inc Chicago Ill., from their selected Kentucky reserve stocks" The gift box is blue with decorative black and gold felt letters saying "Gentlemen we know". The box has gold seals on top and bottom with the words "Res Publicam Serviens" embossed on them along with a two lion coat of arms.
I've researched previous threads in 2002 and 2005 and nobody has any hard fact about it. All I could deduce was that it was a Private Label and it's some pretty good stuff. I invite all members of this forum to an open discussion concerning it's history and value.
