ot wanting to relegate our reproduction of the Drake's Bitters bottle to the level of a prop, we wanted to ensure that the bottle would be used for its intended purpose. After considerable searching, we found that bitters are still produced and sold as a health fortifying daily additive. When I spoke to the representative to open my account, I explained about our hobby, and why I wanted to offer it. They were intrigued, and very supportive, and opened my account with the agreement that the first two Drake's bottles went to them!
To find a mid-19th century consumer health product still being produced is rare, affording one the opportunity to duplicate a 19th century health regimen. As Drake's was sold as a cure all, and especially in the military market, this product would work well for any medical impression, where scenarios of treatment could be created.
