The Great-great-grandson of the founders of Hughes Whiskey from Bedford, PA, is resurrecting the brand that was shut down for Prohibition. Some of these artifacts were passed down in his family and others he acquired from antiques collectors. Most are pre-1880. The whiskey in the bottles is not from that time period, but seemed to make the photos complete. The bottles had bubbles in the glass, were scratched, warped and were not necessarily straight - very 'organic!'
