Put a ‘Lil Whiskey in It: Bourbon Grooming Products for National Bourbon Day

We can all agree that the fake national holiday situation has gotten out of control. Sibling Day! National Fresh Breath Day! Lumpy Rug Day! National Bourbon Day!

Okay, that last one we can wholeheartedly get behind. To celebrate this momentous occasion on June 14, you can, of course, sip your favorite bourbon, but this year you may also want to avail yourself of a bourbon-inspired, albeit alcohol-free grooming regimen. Cheers!
