There is a little Chinaman, two people who look like Central Americans and a man who is standing there in a hat and a suit holding a basket. Each of these people is doing something that seem to be added to the drink. The ad says that "These men are growers of goodness. They raise, pamper and reap the prized Imported Botanicals that make Hiram Walker's Gin so much tastier. Cassia from Indo-China. Juniper from Italy. Delicate herbs, roots and berries from many lands - the finest the world grows". You imagine that this is the best that can be done to improve the product. "Yet - only the best of these rate a place in Hiram Walker's Gin. Fine as they are, these choice botanicals are finer in some years then they are in others. They have their best, their "vintage years" - when Mother Nature makes them especially good. Only then do we buy them".
