Old School Scotch Ads

Here are some vintage, good old-fashion scotch ads that I came across. 

It is interesting, though perhaps not too surprising, to note that scotch, at one time was marketed almost exclusively to the male audience.  Quite often, it seems that men of means or wealth are depicted in the ads, and thus creating an elitist view on the drink.   






As a footnote, I would like to extend my thanks to all those who contributed with ideas on topics to write about.  Your voice is heard.

  7. Man, this are awesome. I miss the days when you could advertise alcohol and tobacco. These days it's practically one step away from prohibition.
