Sometimes, it can be just as fun to talk about or read about whiskey as it is to drink. Okay, maybe for most people it’s always going to be more fun to drink it, but there are a wealth of great quotes out there that all deal with one of man’s greatest inventions.
Need a new quote for your Tinder profile? Planning your gravestone prematurely and want the world to know that, even in death, you really freaking love whiskey? We’ve got you covered. Below, you’ll find quotes from a variety of celebrities of time, from writers to actors to professional athletes that all discuss whiskey. We love these quotes and, frankly, we think you will too.
Note: All of these quotes are best read, of course, when accompanied with a nice glass of whiskey. May we suggest one of the whiskey winners of The Manual Spirit Awards 2018?
