My niece's mother found this sealed bottle of Mount Vernon Pure Rye Whiskey in a garage located in Lillian, AL. We have never seen anything like this and were wanting to find out as much as possible.

    There should be a date on the tax stamp.

    It's from the prohibition era... hence the "medicinal use" label. Had to be prescribed by a doctor in those days... unless you had some shady friends!

    Dizzy Dave's link (http://www.ellenjaye.com/mountvernon.htm) confirms the date since the box says "American Medicinal Spirits Co."
