Today we’re introducing our newest t-shirt – Whiskey Speech.
In 1952, Mississippi state representative, Noah S. “Soggy” Sweat, Jr., gave his infamous “Whiskey Speech” on the floor of the Mississippi state legislature concerning whiskey. It’s reported that it took Sweat two full months to draft his speech, which is renowned for the grand rhetorical terms in which it seems to come down firmly and decisively on both sides of the question. The speech gave rise to the phrase If-by-whiskey, used to illustrate such equivocation in argument.
To celebrate this iconic speech, Bourbon & Banter has created a t-shirt that features the full text of Sweat’s speech on the back in a familiar whiskey bottle shape. Our new Bourbon & Banter logo adorns the front of the shirt letting the world know you’re spreading the bourbon gospel.
