Movember is something that is very close to the hearts of Apothecary 87, especially for our leader, Sam W Martin. At the end of this month, Apothecary 87's founder will brave the shave and get rid of his beard in support of Movember, after more than five years of his face being covered up.
For those who don't know, the '87' in Apothecary 87 pays homage to Sam's grandad.
Sam commented: "As I was starting out Apothecary 87 (and still thinking of a name), my Grandad sadly passed away from Prostate Cancer. It was at the end of September ’13, and I decided to honour this great man’s memory. I would use something of his, in the name. He was 87 when he died and as I was born in ’87, I decided it was a sign that it should be a part of the name. With my love of all things vintage and because I was mixing my own beard tonic, Apothecary 87 was created."
Anyone who follows the brand or Sam's personal brand page will have only ever seen him looking like this.
So just to give you an idea of what you could be treated with at the end, take a look at this:
If you didn't recognise our handsome leader, he is the one on the left showcasing his cocktail flaring skills. What a dish ;-)
At the end of November (30th), we will be going Facebook and Instagram LIVE, so you can all witness the shave happening. Make sure you keep up-to-date with the latest happenings behind the scenes of Apothecary 87 and Sam W Martin, by subscribing to the vlog via Sam's Youtube channel.

Many people support Movember by starting off clean shaved and growing a moustache throughout the month of November, but as Sam already owns a face quilt, he is doing the reverse. Think he is secretly a little nervous about this, after not seeing his face for so long, so please follow his social media pages in support - Search 'Sam W Martin' for Facebook and Twitter.
