Delaware Phoenix Distillery in Absinthe Brand Discussion Posted August 8, 2010 · Report reply The bags were made by my friend Annie here in Walton, on her 1946 Singer sewing machine. The drawstrings are hand braided by her too. The bags were designed to fit the bottles. Their original purpose was to protect the bottles while they were at the store. Some stores have a lot of indirect sunlight and the color was fading more than I'd like. And customers worried that there was a problem. So this helps alleviate that problem. The cost to make then is $5 which includes materials and some cash for Annie. So if someone really wants a bag they should mail me $5 and their address, and whether you want red (for MoL) or green (for WW). Checks, cash, money orders, bearer bonds all accepted.
