The Creator of the “Sourtoe Cocktail” is Dead

He was as eccentric as his drink. Dick Stevenson has died at the venerable age of 89. He kept a bar in Yukon, Canada, where visitors came just to see and, perhaps, taste his famous toe-based whisky … Indeed, generous donors (for the most part after amputations due to severe frostbite) would offer their toes to “Captain Dick,” the renown of whose infamous cocktail had spread worldwide.

We don’t know if Dick Stevenson made any special mention of organ donation in his final will and testament.
