Absinthe Bottle

Green glass bottle, with broken bits of cork inside, which originally contained Pernod absinthe. The label is almost completely gone, but reads along the bottom, "Nous garantissons que cette absinthe a … / France en 1913 et provient du stock entre…" Maker's mark in glass. Cork at the top.


According to the donor, the bottle was part of the tray of ingredients which FDR has used to mix drinks, and that FDR had always added a bit of this liqueur when mixing his famous martinis.
