CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The Old Man of the Mountain, New Hampshire’s granite profile that tumbled to the ground 10 years ago, is showing up on a limited edition commemorative liquor bottle.
Gov. Maggie Hassan and the New Hampshire Liquor Commission introduced the circular bottle with a picture of the Old Man and the state slogan “Live Free or Die” on Wednesday. It costs $29.99 and contains vodka. Proceeds from bottle sales will go toward the preservation of more than 100 deteriorating military flags displayed in New Hampshire’s Hall of Flags at the Statehouse.
The famed rock outcropping that has long served as the state symbol hung 1,200 feet above Profile Lake in Franconia Notch State Park before falling on May 3, 2003. It appears on the state quarter, highway signs and license plates.
