This one is from The "Botanic Beer Company" in Gee Cross.
If anyone has any information on where this brewery was please contact us so we can share it.

I've looked all over for another like this... but alas not turned anything up. It would be great to find out more about the company... and where they worked from.

it's me Elizabeth - Dad says this is a complete mistery. There used to be one of these gallon jugs in the visitors centre on Higham Lane, but him and Eric have absolutely no idea where the brewery was.
