( 1948) Greneker, Eugene ; Iowa State University Digital Repository

What this wit meant was this; prior to l939 if you desired some turpentine for household uses or small paint jobs, you had to scramble around in the backyard for a container, nine out of every ten times an empty quart bottle of either Bourbon or Scotch. With this you went to the hardware store and obtained your turpentine, your merchant drawing it out of a barrel, which chances are, you didn't see. He had it in pulling anything over on you. That's the way one of Georgia's oldest agricultural products was marketed.
