      This is anisette. It was thought to be narcotic & outlawed in a number of countries for some decades.

      The comment above is correct. This is a bottle of anisette, a liqueur made either distilled from or flavored with aniseed, which has a licorice-like flavor. It is a popular drink in Italy and in Spanish-speaking countries. Yours is Cuban, from the pre-Castro period, probably circa 1940s or 1950s, and is manufactured by Ramon del Collado, a famous distillery in Havana known primarily for rum (both Trocadero Rum and Old Havana Brand are popular among collectors). The label design is an obvious reference to the famous Marie Brizard brand whose anisette was popular at the time (the stylized "A" on in the word "Anisette" is very reminiscent of Brizard's design). The Trocadero brand name was applied to a host of other liqueurs and spirits made by this producer, from Cuban "cognac" brandies to orange curacao and other liqueurs. While the rums can have significant value, other types of liqueurs tend not to be as widely collected and usually stay beneath the $100 mark. For something like this I would anticipate a collector paying maybe $75 or so. Please feel free to get in touch if you'd like more information: ewitz@comcast.net. Cheers, -Eric
