About the event
Attention history buffs and whiskey enthusiasts We're raising a glass or two (of legal hooch of course) on January 17th to National Bootlegger Day! During the 1800s, the term bootlegger came to describe the act of concealing flasks of liquor in a boot top when going to trade with Native Americans and then found a permanent place in American vocabulary when Congress passed the Eighteenth Amendment prohibiting the manufacturing, transportation and sale of alcohol in 1920. To fill the public's demand, Bootleggers began smuggling various brews from Canada and Mexico and later distilled their own liquor to sell to speakeasies and other establishments.
