The Statue of Liberty was given to the United States by the French in 1885 and is named after Liberas, the Roman Goddess of Freedom. She holds a torch and tablet evoking American law, which is inscribed with the date of our country’s Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776. The statue was officially dedicated a year later, on October 28, 1886 by President Grover Cleveland, and is a lasting image of America ever since. In fact, the dedication occurred 110 years after Sir Basil Hayden himself created the bourbon recipe that we use for Basil Hayden’s today!

This October 28th, raise a toast to this moment in American history with America’s Native Spirit, Basil Hayden’s Bourbon!

 

Basil Hayden’s The Manhattan

 

The Manhattan is a classic cocktail, which has an American history almost as impressive as the Statue of Liberty herself. A traditional libation with a modern twist, Basil Hayden’s Liberty Manhattan combines sweet and dry vermouth with the fall flavor of maple syrup and trademark spicy finish of Basil Hayden’s Bourbon to create a cocktail perfect for toasting our famed Lady Liberty.
