A Bourbon Worthy of the Burnside Name

A Bourbon Worthy of the Burnside Name

We designed these handsome labels for Eastside Distilling’s new 4-Year Barrel-Aged Bourbon Whiskey that’s named after the famous (or is that infamous) Civil War General, Ambrose Burnside. Burnside had such striking facial hair that we now call those things on your face, just in front of your ears, sideburns. Get it? Burnside – sideburns. While some spirits are said to “put some hair on your chest,” at 96 proof Burnside Bourbon just might “put some sideburns on your face!” And it says so, right on the back label.
