Meet the men behind the booze

(Comstock, ThinkStock)
If you enjoy an adult libation every now and then you might like to know about the men who made the booze. Maybe it’ll even help you win a bar bet. Did you know Johnnie Walker never drank? Did you know Jack Daniels’ real first name was Jasper, Jack being just a nickname, and that he died because he injured his toe kicking a safe in a fit of rage then later got gangrene? Did you know Jim Beam was really Jim Ignatowski and the Beam nickname came from his years as an Olympic gymnast? Okay, that last one I made up. The rest are of these are real.
