Enter “Making the Cut”: the search to replace the irreplaceable Gable with a new face for the Hudson Whiskey brand, and one qualified individual’s shot at a full-time job as Hudson Whiskey’s brand ambassador.

Been a while since we posted a vintage ad for everyone to enjoy. A contributor shared this one with me and I knew that everyone would appreciate the greatness of having a hidden bourbon bar in your home library. I hope everyone enjoys this Kentucky Tavern bourbon ad from 1945. And if you happen to have a really cool bar in your home we’d love to get a photo and share with other readers.
