J. F. NAGEL

* * * *

Jakob Ferdinand Nagel operated a distillery during the prolific 1870 - 1890 period of gin production for world export, mostly from Holland but with fierce competition from Hamburg in Germany.

 J.F. NAGEL produced a number of brands which are sought after by gin bottle collectors, obviously one being the STAG brand displayed on this page, the sealed ROOSTER, refer to the picture below, and the more common HIGHEST MEDAL VIENNA, refer to picture below. 

Special thanks to Lei Damoiseaux for providing these pictures of his rare NAGEL bottle.

SCHIEDAM
" ROOSTER "

<<<<<
NAGEL did not have a distillery in the Dutch town of Schiedam, home of over 400 distilleries at the time, so it can be presumed that the name was advertised for reputation purposes.

It is also interesting to note that the pictorial ROOSTER is very similar to the BEUKERS brand.

HIGHEST MEDAL VIENNA

The brand on this bottle celebrates the First Prize awarded to Nagel's product at the World Exhibition held in Vienna in 1873. The person featured is Kaiser Franz Joseph, Emperor at that time.
