Ingersoll's Vices - Whiskey Label

Ingersoll was also fond of wine, which he preferred to stronger spirits. "Wine is a fireplace, whiskey is a conflagration," he once declared. Yet this did not stop him from endorsing a brand of whiskey. Like the cigar box text, the whiskey label text is drawn from A Christmas Sermon. This may be the only surviving Ingersoll Whiskey label.
