LIFE Magazine was read by a growing middle class who enjoyed as much leisure as life would provide. This 1965 Heublein Cocktails Ad ad is a good example of someone enjoying the good life of travel and cocktails. Upon order, this advertisement will be painstakingly extracted from the original edition in which it appears and carefully framed and packaged for delivery.
Heublein started in 1862 as a restaurant in Hartford, Connecticut. The company really took off after an employee fortuitously discovered that pre-made cocktails prepared for an event that had to be canceled were still quite good a few days later. Not sure what happened to that particular employee apparently imbibed on the job, but his discovery helped turn the company into a large corporation that did everything from bottle pre-made cocktail drinks, produce and distribute A-1 steak sauce (which became their mainstay during the Prohibition era!) and even acquire the rights to Smirnoff Vodka which Heublein marketed as "White Whiskey." Who knew?
This ad will look amazing in any home, an office, dormitory -- or restaurant or bar! Since the ad is the original from an authentic and rare LIFE Magazine, you can rest assured of its unique value! This is a perfect birthday, holiday, Father’s Day or Mother’s Day gift! Personalize this gift by including a certificate of authenticity with your special message.
The LIFE Magazine ad itself measures approximately 10.5″ x 13.5″ and it surrounded by a white professional framing mat cut to this ad’s specifications. The total area of the advertisement and the mat measures 15.75” x 19.7” and looks fantastic. The handsome and contemporary dark-brown frame itself is a high-quality medium-density fiberboard (MDF) with shatterproof plexiglass.
