DIGGING NEWS:

THE CLUBHOUSE HOLE:
It's funny how things sometimes happen. Coming up on December 3rd & 4th the 49er bottle club is holding their annual show and sale in Auburn California. The feature attraction is "A NON COMPETITIVE GROUP DISPLAY IN TWO CATEGORIES, LONDON JOCKEY CLUBHOUSE GINS AND WISTERS CLUB HOUSE BOTTLES".
It just so happens a couple of local boys, this past week, hit a monster 1850's - 1860's privy here in the gold country. It wasn't luck...... they have been probing and digging this area of the gold country for the last couple of years. As they say "persistence pays off" and in this case it payed off big time....
Included in the whole non damaged bottles were:
3 - Wistar's Clubhouse Gins
2 - Jockey Clubhouse Gins
2 - W.S.C. Clubhouse Gins
2 - J.T. Daly Clubhouse Gins
2 - Von Thofen's Aromatic Schnapps (small size)
1 - Black Glass Hostetter's

Wistar's & Jockey Clubs








Some of the tear jerkers included over a dozen broken Jockey Clubhouse Gins, 20 Aromatic Schnapps ( including Udolpho Wolfe's and Von Thofen's) over 2 dozen Wistar's Clubhouse and more than 30 J.T Daly and W.S.C. gins.
Congratulations guys on an awesome dig!

  3. Super finds! Must have been a real rush digging out all those gold rush squares!
    How about putting on a California Clubhouse & Old Woodburn display next year at Auburn?? Maybe it's the secret ingredient needed for the soil to loosen it's grip on certain bottles....

  4. Great dig, love those squares, a big congratulations! It’s nice to see others willing to share their finds too. Another persistent digger also hit pay dirt this month liberating numerous embossed Western 5ths & flask from a monster privy. Pics to follow on the whiskey site..........

  10. The wisters are super rare. Spelled wisters not wistars like the pine tree cordial. A common mistake. I know of 15 examples with about half of those being green. Come to the Auburn show and see the display. We hope to have most of them there. MAX
