The "Mr. Boston" name is known not only for its brands of distilled spirits, but also for its unique reference book, "Old Mr. Boston Deluxe Official Bartender's Guide," used by both professional and home bartenders as the "Bible of Booze." The Guide was first published 1935 and is reprinted in its entirety in our edition. It was first published during the early days after the Repeal of Prohibition, when the distillery started up business again. As late as 2009 new editions were printed.
