DISTILLED AND BOTTLED BY
JAMES WALSH & CO., INC.
LAWRENCEBURG, IND.

Bottom of bottle embossed with '69-42', '0-338', and '4'

Some damage to front label but bottle itself is in excellent condition

Would appreciate any info you can find (I researched online myself and didn't find much), age, value-if any, background. We bought due to the fact that his grandparents were Shaughnessy's, they dropped the 'O' years ago. Thanks!!

James Walsh & Co. CORPORATION KENTUCKY Bardstown KENTUCKY. The company made both whiskey and gin under this name.  As collector's items the bottle themselves would not be worth much unless they were sealed and dated to the 1930s.
