Ontario Ginger Beers

GB041 Sarault - Ottawa

Minimum Bid: $300

Range:$400-600

Sold: $300

The Napoleon Sarault from Ottawa has one of the best transfers of any Ontario ginger beer. These scarce bottles are very hard to find in good condition. Almost all of them are damaged or restored. This is the best example we have offered in a long time. Near mint condition. 3" rub down the left side front. A bit of light case wear. Tiny bleamishes in the lip. Real minor stuff. If you have been waiting for a good one, this is it.
