The newest source whiskey named for master philosopher, linguist, theologian, and metaphysical thinker John Duns Scotus. Contemporary understandings of the dunce cap — the tall, cone shaped hat traditionally shown as a symbol of shame and ignorance — stray from the origins of the brilliant man the notable cap is named for.  Canonically, it was believed that the sky-reaching pointy hats attracted divine energy from the heavens above. To create DUNCE, we channeled that same divine energy, producing a spirit that nobody can put in a corner.
