AVAILABLE SCENTS (ALL BASED ON CLASSIC PROHIBITION ERA COCKTAILS TO MATCH OUR SHAVE SOAPS):
Although not technically a prohibition era drink it still deserves a nod. One day after a huge wipe out at a surfing competition, Harvey wandered into a bar on Sunset Boulevard, California, and ordered a Screwdriver cocktail mixed with a measure of Galliano. Tom got so drunk off of these neon coloured cocktails that he started banging his head off of the wall (possibly in frustration at his earlier performance on his board) and hence the name of this cocktail was invented, the Harvey Wallbanger.
MARY PICKFORD: SPICY BAY RUM, FRESH PINEAPPLE, BLACK CHERRY
Although she was Canadian, Mary Pickford was known as America’s sweetheart in the 1920s and starred in silent movies alongside famous chaps like Charlie Chaplin. (I guess Americans have a thing for claiming Canadians as their sweethearts.) The story goes that she, her husband Douglas Fairbanks, and Chaplin were in Havana when a bartender whipped up this tropical concoction and named it in her honor.
BOURBON BARREL: SANDALWOOD, FRESH TEAK AND BAMBOO, AND SWEET BOURBON
The bourbon barrel is an iconic image of the 20's civil war between american fbi agents and the gangsters running barrels of booze into all the major cities illegally. Our take on this iconic image of the 20's is to take an earthy smoked barrel and make it fresh and appealing to the senses. This is not your grandpas sandalwood scent it is fresh enough for summer and full bodied enough for cold winter night shaves.
CORPSE REVIVER: GIN, ORANGE, LEMON, ABSINTHE
The Corpse Reviver drinks were intended to help those incapacitated by a hangover come back to life for the day. The necessity for the cocktail is interesting to note – a demand for such a medicinal drink must have been recognised, perhaps by the bourgeoisie, who loved both the intellectual artistic sphere and the high life in equal measure.
SIDECAR: LIGHT NOTES OF SMOOTH COGNAC XO, AND FRESH CITRUS BURSTING LEMONS, MILD SANDALWOOD
The Sidecar is often singled out as the only good cocktail to come out of the long national nightmare that was Prohibition. And when you're sipping one, you almost think it was all worth it. The luminous, golden-straw color, the perfectly controlled sweetness, the jazzy high notes of the citrus against the steady bass of the cognac.
SOUTHSIDE FIZZ: GIN TOP NOTE WITH LIME, CUCUMBER
It has been proposed that it gets its name from from the Southside Sportsmen's Club on Long Island. According to one story, the drink was the preferred beverage of Al Capone, whose gang dominated Chicago's South Side. The gin imported by Capone's rivals on the North Side of Chicago was smooth, and usually consumed with ginger ale. However, the gin run by Capone's gang had a rougher edge to it, and required more sweeteners to make it palatable. Thus the South Side was born.
WHISKEY SOUR: HEAVY TOP NOTES OF PREMIUM WHISKEY AND SUBTLE LIME, VANILLA NOTE FINNISH
Professional sailors suffered from scurvy and other malnutrition and sea-sicknesses, up until a bartender’s hero named Vice Admiral Edward Vernon of England began mixing a few ingredients together to serve to his crew. Sailors had a ration of various things, like limes and lemons to prevent scurvy, and liquor for something safe to drink. To prevent a ship full of intoxicated shipmates, the liquor, usually rum once it was discovered, was watered down and lemon or lime juice was added to mask the flavor of the rum. Hence, we have a very early version of the Sour.
