With the references to the Willett Pot Still “genie bottle”,  I had to chuckle to myself this past weekend. Willet Pot Still 750’s and handles on the shelf behind the counter of one store. LIMIT ONE! 
 

Biba! Joe

 

Maybe the store management was trying ti inform their customers.   If you buy this, open it and taste it, consider the price - you will only need to buy one.  😄

The tall Eagle Rare. It looks like a cheap wine bottle.

I know I posted here before about the Willett Pot Still bottle, but all this talk of it reminded me of something from my past. I can hear the sighs from some of you folks that have been around a while. For all you new members, I’m known for my long, drawn out bad jokes, and long drawn out, bad stories. Being forewarned is being forearmed. :P

 

Anyway, as my user name suggests I was a bowler and a fisherman. In Indianapolis many years ago, I used to frequent the Galyans Trading Post store in the Castleton area for my fishing lures and equipment. Fortunately for me, I developed quite a good retaliationship with one of the sales associates there. On one trip to the store, they had a big sale going on that included some of latest and greatest fishing lures and equipment. My guy spotted me and asked what I was interested in. I pointed to a gaudy and glitzy lure that was supposed to be the best ever.  I asked him what he thought. I’ll never forget his answer.“Ya’ know Joe, lures are made to catch fish. But they’re also made to catch fishermen too.”  He just grinned and pointed out another rather ordinary looking lure and said he thought I’d probably be happy with it. I bought three or four, and he was right. I was happy.

 

I really believe this relates to our little hobby here. I readily admit that I’ve bought bourbons just because of a fancy or different bottle. And yes, one was a Willet Pot Still a number of years ago. For the price I paid for it even back then, I could have bought three HH 6  BIB’s. Hmmmm.🤔 

 

Buba! Joe

Agreed.  The bottle, contents, and price of the old white label bottle.

Or even the green label bottle.
