Since The Gewgaw Gifts of the Nineties, Christmas TASTE has changed!
Christmas … 1899
When the gentleman of the Nineties opened his Christmas bundles, he found them loaded with strange gifts.
For instance, the gold toothpick. Hand-painted shaving mug. Moustache cups to keep his Weeping willows out of danger!
And, of course, the traditional gift of liquor. Heavy, heady whiskey as far from your today’s taste as a bearskin lap robe!
But the only kind of bonded whiskey they knew how to make in those days.
Christmas … 1939
May you find bottled-in-bond Signet under your tree! It fits all the other 1939 gifts you’ll find there.
It’s rich, ripe, mellow, and warming as the Christmas spirit. Yet Signet is gloriously light! How come?
First, it’s distilled for lightness. Then it’s aged like the choicest Scotch and Canadian whiskies, the rarest brandies. For 4 years Signet ripens in casks pre-mellowed by prior use in aging other fine Hiram Walker whiskies.
Signet is the first American bonded whiskey to be
AGED IN AGED WOOD!
Warm his heart with the Gift that Thrills his Taste …
The First Bonded Whiskey of its Kind
