The brand is inspired by the bootlegging of the American prohibition era. The founders built off the correlation between the bootlegging of booze in that period and them bootlegging their own custom grooming mixtures. The 18.21 Man Made namesake pays homage to the 18th amendment which, started the prohibition era and was later repealed by the 21st amendment.

Let’s take a look at some the popular products in their range,
