Happy Bastille Day! The Storming of the Bastille, a medieval prison in Paris, on July 14, 1789 was the pivotal turning point in the French Revolution. The 19th century Romantic artist Ferdinand Victor Eugène Delacroix memorialized France’s new beginnings with his work “Liberty Leading the People” (1830), in which the allegorical figure of Marianne —a personification of French independence— carries the French national flag while leading a group of citizen freedom fighters in the pursuit of liberty, equality, and fraternity. As we get closer to this day of remembrance, we raise a glass to those who fight to protect our freedoms, our equality and our rights. This Bastille Day, Celebrate Independence with Guillotine Vodka®.
