Humphrey Bogart… American icon and whisky lover extraordinaire.

Local legend has it… while filming The African Queen (1950) in the Congo, everyone on the crew, including Katherine Hepburn, became sick with dysentery… everyone that is, except Bogart, who only drank whisky.

A few of his last words… “I should never have switched from Scotch to Martinis.”

Cheers to you, Bogie.
