In Search of the Lost "H"

Four of us, with more ambition than sense, have decided to push forward in an attempt to determine just who was responsible for the "H" base mark present on a number of post turn of the century tool top western whiskies.


We NEED your HELP!

Following, please note a database that we've assembled listing bottles and "H" base marks. We know it's not complete. Please email me with what else you've got in your collections so that we can continue to push forward in either ruling out, or pinning down the source of the "lost H".

    29 / H          Louis Taussig & Co.                        783
