Dewar’s Repeal Day

December 4, 2006

Relating to our name Speakeasy, here’s an interesting site honouring the repeal of prohibition created by Dewar’s, famous for their blended Scotch Whisky. On December 5th, 1933, the United States of America celebrated the ratification of the 21st Amendment to the U.S Constitution, repealing Prohibition. The site includes a PDF of the original New York Times article that appeared on December 5th, 1933, and a commercial of what life’s like without alcohol produced by Dewar’s. So check out the site if you’re genuinely interested in a history lesson or just want to be amused by an out of the ordinary marketing ploy. Oh, and if anyone from Dewar’s is reading this, please send some drinks our way so we can celebrate with you.
