Happy trails, Kentuckians! This Friday, we’re launching a knockout product sure to awaken your adventurous side and wet your whistle. One of Kentucky’s finest potters, David Kenton Kring, designed and handmade 25 bourbon flasks for all you pioneers out there. This vessel honors kick-ass Kentuckian Daniel Boone, a folk hero and explorer who was one of the first to recognize the kick-ass qualities of our great state. Boone was born in Pennsylvania in 1734, and soon became an adventurous youngster brave beyond his years. Legend has it he shot his first black bear when he was 12 years old. His wild spirit couldn’t be tamed, so he set out to blaze trails through the young country. Boone led an expedition in 1759 where he and a team of explorers discovered a trail through the Cumberland Gap. His exploration paved the way for other explorers to access the frontier of Kentucky and Tennessee. Without him, Kentucky wouldn’t be the same, and we thank him for that.
Make tracks this Friday by purchasing your own handmade and Kentucky made flask on our website starting at 10:00AM.
