Nearly a century ago, Jacob and Abner Taub crafted and bootlegged their own whiskey during Prohibition to support their family. Then one fateful winter night in 1929, their world came crashing down during a sting that would land the brothers behind bars. The authorities caught wind of their operation and raided their whiskey plant on February 11, 1929. The brothers were charged with violation of Section 88, Title 18 US Codes; transportation of whiskey barrels and making of whiskey. Their spirits production abruptly ended.
Six long years later, President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued presidential pardons to the Taub brothers. They were able to reignite their family business together with their brother Martin (Marc’s grandfather) and help launch Baltimore Club Whiskey. This set into motion a family tradition that has spanned generations and serves as the inspiration behind the name Jacob’s Pardon.
