    Here is a 6-log (to determine log number, look at the panels where the labels went and count the logs from it to the roof) St. Drakes Plantation Bitters I got last month.

    It has an overall amber colour with a bit of strawberry in the thicker portions.

    I have oddly not found an original source to tell me when they were no longer made, but one site said these were discontinued in 1872.

    It has a clean applied top and still sports a few seeds in it (product remains, as it was basically an herbal alcohol?)
