Research Facts
Contained sugar, calamus root, orange peel, Peruvian bark, gentian root, columbo root, rhubarb, cinnamon, cloves, and alcohol; to avoid being taxed as many proprietors were c. 1906 for having mainly alcoholic "medicines", they reduced alcohol from 39% to 25% and increased amount of cinchona and sepentaria.
An experiment by Dr. A. J. Read showed that using various patent medicines as "fuel", Hostetter's Bitters kept the lamp burning for 4 minutes, while the second closest was Peruna at 2 min. 40 sec., and the ration of normal beer only burned for 20 seconds; basically a compound of cheap whiskey, obviously with more than the advertised 25% alcohol by volume (used only a tablespoonful); formula was originally a prescription of Dr. Jacob Hostetter used for colic, constipation and "the Intermittents" - a fever during that time.
When he retured in 1853, consented to allow his son, David, to manufacture and market it; marketing very important, so well known that when war started in 1861, War Department bought the bitters by cartload for the Union Army.
In 1862 published first Almanac; for many years it contained 47% alcohol by volume probably helped the army's courage, if not their medicinal needs.
Partner Smith died in 1874 and the firm's name then became "The Hostetter Co."; in 1958, the company was dead; preferred testimonials from actual physicians; actually sold in saloons in Alaska; daily dose equivalent to 1 1/2 ounces of whiskey; later upped % alcohol from 25% to 37%, claiming this amount of alcohol was needed to hold the ingredients in solution; in 1906, chemists reported analysis showed 43% alcohol by volume.
