Prohibition Style Vegan based Shaving Soaps provide rich, creamy and ultra thick lather  that both moisturizes and protects for close comfortable shave experience.

Fragrance notes include a light balanced blend of gin, orange, lemon and absinthe. A slightly fresher scent that will appeal to those familiar with citrs scents, bt are yearning for a more subtle citrus blend. 

A blend of Shea butter, Cocoa Butter, Mango Butter, Soy Butter and Olive Butter make up this vitamin E enriched shaving soap.   Even with all of the moisturizing butter combinations, you still get a classic hard soap which gives you more shaves per ounce than softer soaps.

So what is a corpse reviver?  Some people swear by “hair of the dog” remedies.  The idea is that drinking more booze can cancel out a hangover — or at least dull its pain.   There is a longstanding tradition of such potions.  The “corpse-reviver” was one such class, so named because it could — figuratively speaking — bring a drinker back from the “dead.”

Today the most commonly known example from that school is the Corpse Reviver #2, a drink that essentially was forgotten after Prohibition, but has become popular again as interest in classic cocktails has exploded.

The Corpse Reviver #2 is so named because that’s what Harry Craddock called it (there are two other versions of the drink, but #2 is by far the tastiest). Craddock was a famous American barman from the 1920’s and 30’s who left the States during Prohibition, moving to London to work at the Savoy Hotel. Even if Craddock didn’t actually invent the drink, we remember it because of him. He wrote about it in his 1930’s classic, The Savoy Cocktail Book. 

Craddock’s opinion of the drink? “Four of these taken in swift succession will un-revive the corpse again.” A warning that even the best medicines can have unfortunate side effects if taken in excess!

Recipe:  The Corpse Reviver #2


  • ¾ oz gin (I suggest Plymouth’s)
  •  ¾ oz Cointreau
  • ¾ oz Lillet Blanc (available in good liquor stores)
  • ¾ oz lemon juice
  • 1 or 2 drops of Pernod, Ricard, or absinthe - or any other pastis (anise-flavored liqueur)
  • 1 stemless cherry for garnish (optional)
