This is a subtle Cutter variant with a flat-topped ampersand on the"Martin & Co."

Thomas (WB, p. 11) notes that Edward Johnson Martin was born in Ireland in 1819 and arrived in San Francisco at the age of 29. He made a small fortune in mining and then returned to San Francisco and in 1859 partnered with Daniel V. B. Henarie, E. P. Rowe and James Mairs in a wholesale liquor business, known as E. Martin & Co.
In 1870, they involved John F Cutter in an attempt to steal the Cutter brand away from Charles P. Moorman.

Although they lost a legal battle over the Cutter brand, they did produce several successful brands.

Brand names used by this company include: "Argonaut", "E Martin & Co.", "J. F. Cutter", "J. F. Cutter Extra Old Bourbon", "J. F. Cutter's Extra Bourbon", "Miller's Extra Old Bourbon", "Miller's Extra Whisky", "Miller's Old Bourbon", and "Old Dorsey."
