New Retro 51 Speakeasy Rollerball Pens:

Those Who Love to Raise a Glass Will Love to Raise One of These


Bottoms up! Retro 51, creator of fine writing instruments with personality, recently introduced a new line of libation-inspired pens designed to get writers in the creative spirit.


There are three pen styles in the Tornado Speakeasy series, representing popular beverages of choice, including:


  • Pilsner Beer – featuring a sculpted twist bottle cap top, full-bodied yellow lacquer finish and festive “cheers” label.
  • Red Wine – with a robust red barrel and printed label, topped with an actual cork.
  • Absinthe (aka “the green fairy”) – featuring a green demon and antique silver accents, this pen celebrates the potent green liquor favored by writers and artists in the days of Prohibition.


These retractable rollerball pens are lightweight, ergonomic, and write like a dream. Each comes in a matching tube, so they’re great for gift-giving. They’re also refillable (with a choice of ballpoint and rollerball cartridges), so they’re ecologically minded.


The pens’ MSRP is $40. For a list of dealers, visit As they like to say at Retro 51: always write responsibly.
