Given the field that I have chosen, I don’t really get ‘dressed up’ too much. When I do, I relish the chance to get to wear my grandfathers old tie clip that was handed down to me after he passed away. I have no idea of its origin and significance to him personally, but to me it has become a small reminder of how to be a true man’s man. He was a man from a different kind of generation; one of war veterans and polite, honest hard workers who helped build our country to what it is today. He wore this tie clip with his suit some days, would paint houses on others, and even pump oil a few afternoons a week to support his family. When I put this tie clip on with my suit, I don’t need to feel like JFK or Don Draper, I get to feel like my grandfather who is my real life inspiration.

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
