In the 1890 - 1891 Sandusky city Directory, there is a advertisement for " Henry Eichler & Co., manufacturers of and dealers in German roots and herb Bitters. Since their products are described as German bitters, it might be possible that one of their brands could have been the name Kaiser Wilhelm, the first emperor of Germany. Unfortunately there is no evidence to prove or disprove this speculation. There is no direct information about Kaiser Wilhelm Bitters in Sandusky history. Below is a photo of two different colors of this bottle.
