Drink Like Your Favorite Author.
Great writers can often be great men, at the very least, men with great minds. We here at Hammerstone’s Whiskey Disks believe that great ideas are like tractors – if you don’t have one, you can probably borrow one. So, we propose that we borrow a great idea from a man that we admire, one our favorite writers.
Drink: Mint Julep. Like any Southern Gothic writer worth his salt, Faulkner was up to his ears in mint juleps. He’s also one of those authors who thought he wrote better with a little whiskey in him, and kept a bottle by his desk at all times.
Motto: “There is no such thing as bad whiskey. Some whiskeys just happen to be better than others. But a man shouldn’t fool with booze until he’s fifty; then he’s a damn fool if he doesn’t.”
Following in Faulkner’s footsteps may not help us produce the next great American novel, but we are convinced it will help us to live a little larger. Isn’t that what it’s all about?
