Repeal Day: Restoring the Right To Drink Old New Orleans Rum

Hip hip hooray, for Repeal Day! Instead of pouring one out for all those who thirsted for a sip of spirit during the 13 years of Prohibition, shoot it back and thank those liquor lovers for their hard work in determination 75 years ago!

On Dec. 5, 1933, the 21st Amendment put a smack-down on the 18th Amendment, thus allowing us to enjoy our spirits today. If it weren't for this repeal, Old New Orleans Rum would still be a twinkle in James Michalopoulos' eye.

If you want to enjoy this evening right, like they did on that glorious day, you'll have yourself a Rum Runner, in honor of the most infamous (in our opinion awesome-est) rum runner, William McCoy, on the 21st hour to commemorate the amendment.

Enjoy. Drink Up. "Stay Wet!"

Till the next round,
