Mad Men, Single Malt Scotch, And Perpetually Stocked Bars

Article by Mark Etinger

When I watch Mad Men I get jealous. Not of the world they lived in. With the amount of tumultuous changes and some of the gut wrenching set backs of the 60’s, it would have been hard to just relax and have a good time. Besides that, there was no cellphones and nothing on television half as good as Mad Men. It was not the seemingly widely available and often promiscuous women either. I am totally intimidated by the opposite sex. What they did seem to have was fully stocked bar at all times. It clearly does not seem to matter where the characters on Mad Men are they all appear to be constantly surrounded by the best single malt scotches, vodkas, gins, and whatever other high quality brands of booze were around.

It was as if they were all in a perpetual state of casually drunk, not often hammered into the wall by a bottle of single malt scotch whiskey. Instead these old cads coast from room to room, business meeting to business meeting, social event to home, always with a glass of single malt scotch or a Crown Royal whiskey. They always seem to manage. Obviously living in that kind of reality would get unhealthy but it is fun to dream.

Also, just because you are not tossing back a bottle of Grey Goose vodka by 3 pm does not mean you can’t have a fully stocked bar in your home or office. Having a drink or even a few is a classy act and a great opportunity to share with a guest or potential business partners and clients. Having a bar loaded to the gills with Glenfiddich, Chivas Regal, Jack Daniels Whiskey, Disaronno Amaretto, Macallan Scotch, Glenlivet Scotch, and all the other brands everyone loves can make you the champion at throwing parties or just of entertaining a few choice friends.

A fully stocked bar is a thing to get excited about. It is one of the many indicators that you have arrived as an adult. Being a grown up is not all good but these kinds of exciting pleasant for all parties involved milestones definitely are. I love a good drink and I love a good bottle of liquor. Each one seems to tell a story, if not about its self than about you and where you have had it, how it affected the night who you were with. Why not stock your liquor cabinet with some memories?
