Rebuilding History

Each vanity is crafted with historic Douglas fir originally used to construct racks to hold whiskey barrels in the early 1900s. These racks were part of several rack houses in Peoria, Illinois owned by Hiram Walker and later sold to Seagramís Distillery. The rack houses were usually 10 stories high, holding thousands of barrels of whiskey.

By the mid to late 1800s, Peoria was already the ìWhiskey Capital of the World,î thanks to its rich supply of spring water, abundant grains, and easy access to transportation. The liquor industry took off from the late 1800s until Prohibition was signed into law in 1919. In spite of that law, the distillery was very active during Prohibition. Therefore, the wood in this vanity has been privy to many years of bootlegging.

The reclaimed Douglas fir features the original scuffs and nail and bolt holes that would be expected after nearly a century of existence, making each vanity in the collection one of a kind. Even better, it has been blessed with the "Angel's Share" of whiskey that has evaporated through the pores of the barrels and floated throughout the rack house for decades. Cheers!
