The Whiskey is Coming

The Founding Fathers of the United States didn't plan the revolution in coworking spaces. They met in taverns. Toast their drink-fueled disruption with these rocks glasses, each of which bears a Founding Father's personal seal, signature, and a quote.

"Honesty is always the best policy," said George Washington, who had one of the biggest whiskey distilleries in the country at Mount Vernon. "Without Freedom of Thought, there can be no such Thing as Wisdom; and no such Thing as publick Liberty, without Freedom of Speech," said Ben Franklin, who published The Drinker's Dictionary, listing 200+ slang phrases for being drunk ("Pidgeon Ey'd," "Jambled," "had a Thump over the Head with Sampson's Jawbone," etc.). Makes a great gift for a history or politics buff, teacher, lawyer, or lover of the American dream. Made in Pennsylvania.
