Houses of Bourbon Poster
This Houses of Bourbon poster takes the guesswork out of who owns what brands by breaking down the major corporations behind these iconic bourbon names. Surprisingly, many of your favorite Kentucky brands are owned by companies outside the state (and even the country) and many of the bottles competing for your attention are actually owned by the same company.
But we won’t have to tell you that, once you hang this sleek, museum-quality poster over your home bar. You’ll be the bourbon lover in the know, able to recite the family trees like they’re your own.
Bourbon Helps T-Shirt
For the bourbon lover who never stops talking about bourbon (so all of them), this t-shirt deserves a prominent place in your wardrobe. It’s soft, lightweight, and pairs well with a good dram or two. Will bourbon solve all of your problems? Probably not. But, to quote our new favorite shirt, it helps.
Cooler Than Cool Smoked Whiskey Glass
We would never expose one of our expensive glasses to the elements, but sometimes we want to enjoy a cool breeze alongside our drink. When we want to venture outside with a nice bourbon, we reach for these Cooler Than Cool Smoked Whiskey glasses. Made of BPA-Free plastic, these cups feature a proprietary gel inside the double-walled construction, which keeps your bourbon at the perfect temperature for longer than any other glass. Just store them in the freezer and you’ll always have a cold dram at the ready.
Barrel-less Aging Kit
There are plenty of ways to add a personal touch to your cocktails, but the Barrel-less Aging Kit is an extra special one. Skip the huge, expensive oak barrel and opt for this kit with a charred oak stick that will transform your bourbon anywhere from a day to six weeks. Give your bourbon the color, flavor, and aroma to transform young liquors into fine spirits and create custom riffs on your favorite cocktails.
Each kit comes with one stainless steel & silicone stopper/pourer, two charred oak sticks, and a world of possibility for customizing your favorite sipping spirits and cocktails. And because the stopper sits in the original spirit bottle, you don’t have to worry about any additional messes or spills when transferring to other containers.
Cocktail Pro Ice Trays
Ice is often an overlooked component in the art of cocktail crafting, but it’s an important structural and flavor element. That’s why every cocktail drinker needs these specialty ice cube trays. Each is crafted from flexible, sturdy silicone which is both dishwasher and microwave safe, and also makes it very easy to pop those cubes out when you need them, rather than engaging in a quick battle with the ice cube tray. Each also comes with a lid, protecting your ice from picking up other flavors from the fridge and making it easy to stack them.
You’ll be set to make the perfect ice for all of your favorites from Mint Juleps to Manhattans. The hardest part? Remembering to refill them at the end of the night.
Stainless Steel Whiskey Cubes
It would be truly tragic to see a good bourbon lose its luster because it’s been watered down by too much ice. Whiskey Cubes keep your glasses perfectly chilly and allow you to add the amount of water you desire, ensuring your first sip tastes the same as the last. This sleek, modern set belongs in every gorgeous dram you pour.
