Freedom is infused in our spirits. Our namesake and pioneer whiskey connoisseur, Joseph A. Magnus, was known for his pre-prohibition persistence, and today our company is still based upon his rigor and passion for liberation.
We are grateful for our freedom and we want our spirits to help you celebrate yours. Enjoy these cocktail recipes on the 4th, and let freedom ring.
