Q: I bought a house built in the 1890s, and when I renovated the kitchen I found a jug inside a wall. No telling how long it had been there. It’s 8 inches high and still has part of the label, which says “Mohawk Green Creme de Menthe, Made & Bottled by Mohawk Liqueur Corporation, Detroit, Michigan.” I would like to know if the company is still in business.
A: Mohawk Liqueur Corp. was formed in 1933. In 1966 it was sold to 21 Brands, which became a subsidiary of Foremost-McKesson in 1970. Mohawk was still in business until at least the 1980s.
