L.E. Jung & Wulff Absinthe

It appears that the surviving L.E. Jung & Wulff Absinthe bottle dates later than previously thought, (1930s) but is still an incredibly rare surviving artifact of absinthe in New Orleans. (Perhaps far more rare than Pre-Ban)

After some extensive digging, I've been able to pull together some fascinating information on L.E. Jung, and L. E. Jung & Wulff.

Stay tuned...
