Ahhh, looks like a Green Death bottle.


Pick Axe branded. I think West End and Southwark used Pick Axe bottles.

Certainly did, would've had the old styled ring pull:

You'd go from seemingly fine to absolutely blotto instantly, reminded me of the teenage days drinking Mississippi Moonshine or Nikov Vodka and Orange.


Nikov.

It was violent, my first powerchuck. I threw up 3 days after drinking it as I walked into a friends house on a hot day and could smell oranges.

I have never been able to have OJ with alcohol since.

When I first started drinking at the Hilton ( South Road ) when I was 16 an old bloke, Peewee, sat at the end of the old oval shaped front bar in the middle of the room drinking $2 pints of Port all night, every night.

It has a handle on the side, does that help?
