French Rhum 1883 Flask

A fantastic piece of distilling history.

Though not replete with information what we can say is that the wax seal is embossed with "188Ɛ* Rhum FUTG1Ɛ*0" and that the liquid is filled in a glass bottle encased in wicker.

We surmise that this is likely an Agricole Rhum from the French Caribbean, filled in 1883 possibly from Fût/cask G130

There is no volume stated but we estimate the volume to be between 1 and 1.5 Litres

*An apparent typographical error resulting in the 3 being embossed backwards 

Shipping will be charged at 2 bottles on this lot.
