And when it comes to history, few tales are as rich as that of alcohol and spirits. For instance, did you know that wine predates the wheel? Its true! So its easy to see the allure of alcohol. It flows through time, touching so many moments.
Lifting Spirits For Centuries
In 1803, Meriweather Lewis signed a requisition for 30 gallons of rectified spirits. He had high hopes of emboldening the 30+ enlisted men who joined his expedition. And in 1918, as the Spanish flu raged across the globe, whiskey was prescribed in small quantities for medicinal purposes. This amber alcohol was also prescribed to doctors, nurses, and other frontline workers who imbibed to safeguard themselves from suffering. And of course, while the decade long dry spell of prohibition was intended to end the sale of alcohol altogether, bootleggers were forced to innovate. This innovation left a permanent mark on the industry today.
