She is famous for having won all three races against the British challenger “Shamrock” in the 1899 America’s Cup, as well as the defender of the eleventh America’s Cup race in 1901 against British challenger Shamrock II. She was the first vessel to win the trophy twice in a row, (a record not equaled until Intrepid’s back-to-back wins in 1967 and 1970.
Old Spice is a registered trademark of Procter & Gamble, a very recognizable American brand of male grooming products. It was originally manufactured by the Schulton Company which was founded in 1934 by William Lightfoot Schultz and called Early American Old Spice of 1937, which was actually for women, followed with Old Spice for men in 1938. In June 1990, Procter & Gamble purchased the Old Spice brands from the Schulton Company. The most recognizable Old Spice branding is the buoy-shaped bottle. Old Spice has a relationship with NASCAR and has sponsored many cars throughout the NASCAR world from 2004 to 2010.
Interesting fact, the pewter lid is embossed by ALWE with “W. Germany” (West Germany), which is where they were located, one year after, in 1990, West and East Germany were united.
