Spring is finally here, my fellow Kentuckians! And to kick off the spring season, we’re launching a product this Friday that’ll have you dreaming of sipping coffee on the front porch of an old log cabin on a crisp spring morning. One of our favorite Kentucky potters, David Kenton Kring, has handmade 50 mugs in ode to the truly ass-kicking Kentuckian, Daniel Boone. As a founding father of this kick-ass state, don’t we owe it to ole Boone to drink out of a mug with his face there to constantly remind us of how lucky we are to live in such a wonderful place? After all, he led the expedition in 1759 that introduced him and his team of explorers to the Cumberland Gap,which then paved the way for other explorers to access the frontier of Kentucky and Tennessee. If it wasn’t for him, Kentucky may not have been kicking ass for nearly as long as we have. For that, we give him our gratitude.
Make tracks this Friday by purchasing your own handmade and Kentucky made mug on our website starting at 10:00AM.
