Antique Gin Bottles


Most old gin bottles were of a type called case gins, which had four straight sides and a square bottom that allowed easily fitting 4 to 12 bottles in a wooden packing case.
The most common color for case gins is olive green, though examples can also be found in clear, amber, and cobalt blue.
