- The Story of Earl Giles -

Earl Giles was a real man, long before a Minneapolis Distillery.

During prohibition, Earl (Smith) Giles flew his floatplane all over the Upper Midwest deliving "medicine". He did this by cleverly dispensing alcohol into apothecary bottles from his pharmacy in Northern Minnesota.
