Tom Pendergast Stamped Baron Del Rivero Brandy Unopened From The 1930's

Hi. Travis here. I really need help. I recently acquired a bottle of Baron Del Rivero Brandy from an estate sale from the 1930's. I was informed that it was a gift from Tom Pendergast, (the political machine boss, with mob ties of the late 1800's to 1945 in Kancsas City) to the homeowners in 1934, right after the end of prohibition. In fact it is sealed with a label covering the cap that reads: " T.J. Pendergast W.L. Co. Kansas City, MO." The WL stands for wholesale liquor, but that's about the most I've found out. I know nothing of the bottle and cannot find any information on it anywhere. Does anyone have any information on this? Any help would be apprectiated.
