Gordon Gin, 1912

Gordon Gin ad, 1912, originally uploaded by Gatochy.

"See the name Gordon in red on the back of every label

Used on bottles sold in the United States East of the Rocky Mountains

There is doubtless a reason why there are eighty imitations of Gordon London Dry Gin on the market, why lables are forged and bottle refilled.

There are more frauds committed in the name of "Gordon" than in any one article sold in the United States.

Buy it of reputable dealers and see that "Gordon" is furnished when ordered. The month of production is perforated on every label."
