Forget everything you knew about the 1960s. Forget Mad Men, forget Apollo 11, forget The Beatles, forget JFK, forget Cuba, don't forget Vietnam...but forget about the rest. In the '60s, all you had to care about was a nice bottle of bourbon and the quickest method of getting it into your mouth.
Back then, you couldn't go online and find a self-mixing glasses, and if you wanted your whiskey aged for three years, you damn well had to wait three years. Times were simpler and the advertising reflected that sentiment. These, below, are some of the finest whiskey ads the 60s had to offer from major brands who are still alive and kicking today. They're not all politically correct by any means, but that doesn't make the booze inside any less sweet. Enjoy.
