    WAkE UP

    in the hand

    and bourbon

    on the mind.

    WAkE UP
    To The Smell

    of Coffee and

    the thought

    of bourbon.

    Greets the Day

    Like an Open Bottle

    Will Enjoy

    It As Such.

    Soon Enough

    It Will Be



    A Bourbon

    Best Sipped

    Over Long


    At the end
    of the day

    Our Bottle

    Will be


    Share the toils
    Of the day

    And the

    Spoils Of

    the Evening.

    It's late

    but the Best Guests

    Are Still


    Late Nights

    are Best Savored

    One Sip

    At a Time.

    We agree,
    Monday is

    no time to let

    Your Bourbon

    Knowledge Lapse.

    The Glass
    is Half Full

    and the week

    is half


    We say
    the glass

    is half full,

    and the week

    is half over.

    Around an

    Open Bottle.
