Mystery label #9 Mystery label #9 has been sent in by our friend from Croatia. He just asks if anyone knows who brewed it and when. 7 Responses to Mystery label #9 Alan Gibbs-Murray on November 3, 2014 at 4:23 am Hi , I have this label and two very similar under George Younger ! I will try and see why , but I believe Joan Connew had told me . Perhaps Keith or Mike can confirm for us , but I’m happy with G Younger until proven wrong . AGM Dale Adams on November 5, 2014 at 6:33 am Hi Alan What does your Trade Mark research have on the “M” trade mark on this label? Possibly a good clue there? Cheers Dale Keith Osborne on November 6, 2014 at 3:24 pm I have this label in my George Younger (Alloa) selection. Peter D on November 6, 2014 at 4:16 pm George Younger is where I have three labels with Morrison & Co and the ‘M’ mark, but I do not know the significance of the Morrison & Co. Where they exporters or importers, or perhaps local distributors in Rangoon? To add to the mystery, I have been sent the scan which appears as Mystery label #13 Alastair W on November 9, 2014 at 10:14 am Stork & Co were a firm of importers, shipping agents, retailers and general merchants in Burma serving the Empire and t British ex-pats.. They were into just about everything in the import/export and retail-wholesale market. (Whether or not they were into the exportation of Laudanum, I’m not sure!) I believe they also operated some ships. The business was a bit like Virgin & “the Bearded Jumper” are – ie, “If it makes money, let’s do it”. . They were, apparently, also a bit like other multiple traders are today in that they sold false manufacturers’ “brands”, so the “Morrison” and “M” was probably one of their marques indicating Scottish products. Alastair W on November 9, 2014 at 10:16 am By the way, they also dealt in high value goods such as jewellery. I think their successor company is still around today.
