Meet Asa, the boss of Short Branch Ranch

Some call him iron-handed, he would say “focused”

“I swear, if you can’t ride it or take it to bed, you don’t need it.” ~Asa

Owning a ranch leaves no room for tomfoolery. On Asa’s ranch, the day starts before the sun comes up and keeps on goin’ until the work is done (and not a second before).

He has no time to suffer deadbeats or troublemakers. Folks who cross him find themselves at the receiving end of a reminder of “who’s the boss ‘round here,” administered by Barzell, Asa’s right-hand man.

The way Asa sees it, his sternness is justified: Life is dog-eat-dog and without discipline he would never survive the revenuers, rustlers, and ruthless widows who vie for a piece of his ranching fortune.

A private man, Asa does not share his thoughts and feelings—unless those thoughts include “Get back to work!”

Of course, at the end of a hard day’s work, a man should get a chance to relax with his whisky.

The Asa decanter is pewter with a rubber stopper atop a handsome glass carafe. The price is $239 and will be ready to ship in time for holiday gift giving.
