The Pit Liquor team joined forces this summer to help Jenny at Busy Bee Lavender Farm harvest this season’s lavender crop. Unlike many other deodorants on the market, we can actually point to where our ingredients come from, and we personally know the folks behind them. In fact, all of the lavender we use in our products comes from Busy Bee Lavender Farm, which is just down the road from our headquarters in Fort Collins, Colorado.
The fact that you use Pit Liquor already tells the world that you’re a badass, conscious consumer who cares about their body and the environment. Go you! But did you know that the scent you choose might also have a little something to say about your personality?
Your fun-loving and adventurous spirit knows no-bounds and truly thrives in the scorching summertime. Despite soaring temperatures, you throw on a yellow swimsuit and coverup then bike to the river to bathe in mama nature’s chilly waters. You’ve recently started letting your body hair grow because you're so over modern beauty standards but you’re not totally sure you like how it looks and feels - yet. You’re definitely a kid at heart and not totally sold on the adulting thing so you shirk some responsibilities - like parking tickets, anything post office related, and bringing that box of clothes to the thrift store. However, you are responsible enough to hold down a few jobs that allow you to buy farmers market produce and afford a new pair of Birkenstocks. Priorities, baby.
Whiskey Old Fashioned
You’re a crisp white shirt and blue jeans kind of guy or gal. Your collection of bolo ties is something to marvel at and you’ll always choose John Wayne over John Krazinski. As a child, your parents giggled at your “old soul” as you steeped a cup of Earl Grey before cozying up with a good comic book. Now, you’re an elegant adult who has both a typewriter and a record collection because life is meant to be savoured in a slow, meaningful way. Even if that means you have to lug a heavy typewriter and complete collection of Agatha Christie novels around every time you move apartments, you’ll bite the bullet and do it. John Wayne would be proud. Whiskey Old Fashioned sold out? Make your inner Annie Oakley proud with Whiskey Lavender.
Roses & Champagne
Oh you fancy, huh? Well why the hell wouldn’t you be? Life’s too short not to treat yourself to a dozen roses and champagne in your cereal. You’re decadent and your friends love you for it. You take things over the top - surprise birthday party for your cat complete with 200 balloons? You went there and it was so damn fun for everyone, except the cat. It’s likely that you have a few too many vintage dresses in your closet that you haven’t found an excuse to wear. No worries, you’ll throw a Queen’s Gambit-themed party one day soon and you won’t need to shop for an outfit. But you probably will anyway.
You’re always on island time baby and we ain’t mad about it. Start times really are just a suggestion and you always roll up looking cool as a cucumber, ready to go with the flow no matter where it takes you. You're a windows down-AC on type and your low fuel light is constantly on. But you’ll be fine for a few more miles, surely. Nothing ruffles your feathers, not a global pandemic, not a tumultuous election, not even when Jamba Juice runs out of pineapple and can’t make your favorite Caribbean Passion smoothie. If on the off chance you get the slightest bit flustered you simply pause and ask yourself, “WWJBD” or “What Would Jimmy Buffet Do”?
Move over Paul Bunyan. There’s a new lumberjack in town and he wears that flannel well. You spend your leisure time building the tiny home of your dreams that you’ll soon whisk away to the mountains. Cold winter mornings don’t bother you, in fact, you love the excuse to split wood out back with your grandfather’s ax, then come in from the cold and sip a cup of strong black coffee, only to feel your beard grow thicker and even more luxuriant. Your loofah is a pine cone and you’ve recently decided to only eat meat that you hunt yourself. It may be a lean winter but you’ve almost perfected your rabbit stew recipe.
