Description

Sun Crest was a product of the NuGrape company. NuGrape was acquired by the Moxie Company in 1968 so this bottle must predate that. However, it says "70" on the bottom, so it is possible it is from 1970, though at that point it probably would have been labeled as being bottled by the Moxie Company. No advertisements for Sun Crest were found in the Atlanta Journal Archives and few are being sold online, so it is difficult to date.
The NuGrape headquarters was located at 794 Ralph McGill Boulevard and was registered as a National Historic Place in 1996.
