Why? Because it is to your interest as well as ours. We know you aro spending your good hard earned dollars for liquors that are manufactured and not distilled. What we mean by manufactured is?a concoction of spirts, flavors and drugs mixed to imitate whisky. It is this you pay your good money for to our competitors when the same price will purchase Pure Distilled Whiskies from us. We are a little farther from you than some other dealers, but can reach you promptly. Goods shipped by us in the afternoon by freight reach Frederitiksburg early next morning.
