Facebook Post about buying Local

I normally don’t get involved in Facebook conversations or comment on the state of affairs but hearing about Wild and Woolly Video closing and the fact that nobody is talking about it just a week later struck a nerve.

Their few and far between commercials alone made me a fan.

Best Gifts for Every Bourbon Lover

Bernie Lubbers aka The Whiskey Professor and Brand Ambassador at Heaven Hill (former BA at Jim Beam) is a friend who we have hung out with a bit and worked for, both via work we have done for Heaven Hill Distillery and for him personally.

What sets us apart

We started this business 3 years ago and there were only a handful of people making art out of barrels.  Now there are bunches of people making things left and right.  A few of them even dog us on their websites and pages. That’s fine with us. The quality of our work, attention to detail […]

Bourbon Festival 2013

Bardstown, Kentucky is invaded by 50,000+ every September by people from all over the world to celebrate our native spirit.  Throughout the week we had a barrel head with our new logo sitting on a table and asked that people sign it with their name and where they were from.  Our week started on Thursday […]
