Un million dans un verre
Bartissol
si délicieux à l'apéritif
One million in a glass
Bartissol
So delicious as an aperitif.
The slogan alludes to a very popular radio advertising campaign of the 1950s. If you happened to produce a Bartissol cap to the right person (a radio man in disguise) you could win a million centimes.

around the head of the tower and a bottle on either side.
Good exposition was most important. Otherwise the bottle could have been drawn between the ridges.
It looks like the job was aborted mid-way some strokes above the red band.

Anisette GRAS

In 1872 in Alger, the GRAS brothers (born in Spain) started to sell an apéritif based on an old family recipe. Soon the anisette GRAS became very popular under the French in their colony.
Our spotter, M. Jullien remembers his time in service during the Algerian war: When free from duty, we savoured our time on the terraces with a glas of Anisette Gras on our side.

Bardinet exists since 1857. Négrita became a deposited brand almost thirty years later in 1886. The micro-dressed lady dates from the mid 1970s. Reposado means that the Mezcal could rest for at least two months in wooden barrels. con gusano means that the bottle contains a worm which lives inside the Agava plant.
Since times immemorial aphrodisiac powers are attributed to this worm. But that's not why a (nor exactly this) gusano is added to the bottle. It's presumably only a matter of taste.
The gusano is a caterpillar of a moth; two species actually.
+ The red gusano (chinicuil, Hypopta agavis) crawles inside the stem of the Agave (that's the one you'll prefer in the bottle).
+ The white gusano (ocuilin, Acentrocneme hesperiaris) lives in the leaves and works its way to the heart of the plant. This caterpillar can reach 7 cm and is considered delicious fried in olive oil.
