“Great minds drink alike”

“Great minds think alike” is an old proverb. “Great minds drink alike” is a drinking variation that has been printed on many images. “Great minds drink alike” was a popular line in newspaper and magazine ads for Williams & Humbert sherry that were printed in many publications in 1963 and 1964.


14 October 1964, South China Morning Post (Hong Kong), pg. 18, col. 1 ad;
Great minds drink alike
and the sherries they like
are the sherries we sell

GREAT MINDS DRINK ALIKE
The debaucherous get-togethers of humanity’s top thinkers.

BY TONY PERROTTET
If the Bacchanalia created a blueprint for our most depraved debauches, the ancients also bequeathed us its more elegant counterpart: the learned drinking party or symposium.

It’s said that ‘’In wine, there is truth.’’ In wine, and beer, and especially in martinis, there is also wit and wisdom. We invite you to raise your glass and toast the great literary minds of history-from Aristophanes to Frank Zappo-who could smooth away life’s rough edges with a bon mot and a belt of booze
