There is very little that I can find about the Carmeliter Bitters Company. One of the seven variants is embossed with Burhenne & Dorn. Another variant is embossed with the name Frank R. Leonori & Co. There is an example of a label found on one of these bottle saying Burhenne & Dorn, Proprietors Brooklyn, N. Y.
