Knock-off or Rip-off?
This Martell knock off was produced in probably 1937 and was sold in Mexico. If you traveled down there or lived there, you just might grab this off the shelf and think you got the real thing. The company which produced it, Anglo Swiss Vintager, also made a great many tequilas, rums, and even a marvelous set of ceramics. This one though is certainly less anspicious.
It just goes to prove that imitation isn't necessarily the sincerest form of flattery!
