    Found this interesting old box at estate sale

    I found this old box at an estate sale. It was being used as a tool box. I just thought it is interesting because it has dates and historical information on it.Click image for larger version.

    There's some information about Joseph S. Finch and Co. in Pennsylvania online. This page has a history of Pennsylvania distilleries and Finch is mentioned in the 5th-to-the-last paragraph. Quite interesting, and cool box.

    Nice box.

    Ethanol was distilled for non-drinking purposes - medical, industrial, etc and was not then nor today subject to the same taxes as spirits for consumption. However, it was sometimes used for drinks anyway, for the cost-savings. Much as "off-road" diesel is today. Confession: I once used some "excess" ethanol used for dehydrating samples, to spike the punch at a grad school Halloween bash...(I don't recommend this unless you are 100% sure there is no additive that makes the ethanol undrinkable).

    Apparently the url did not take when I posted this reply a couple of months ago. Let's try again. Interesting reading.
