What’s more American than moonshine? Why bourbon, of course.

America is a melting pot of cultures, and bourbon has its own mishmash of influences from “the old country.” It takes some characteristics from Scotch whisky, for instance, while the name is said to come from the French royal family of the time. One thing is for sure: bourbon represents a people, a region, and a storied tradition.

Today, bourbon is highly regulated by the U.S. government to help preserve this important piece of our collective legacy. For instance, bourbon has to be made in the United States, it must contain at least 51% corn, and it must be aged in new charred American oak barrels. True bourbon aficionados know all that, but they’re also well aware that what makes this liquor truly iconic is the spirit with which it’s made (pun intended).

Luckily, this Personalized Bourbon Bootleg Kit will help you make your own bourbon-inspired creation sure to be appreciated by purists and modernists alike. You supply some grain alcohol or neutral vodka, the kit supplies everything else including the essential American white oak barrel, a bung and spigot, cleaning supplies, a complete set of instructions to get you started, and even a stand so you can display your DIY deliciousness on top of your home bar.

Give this gift to anyone who loves drunk history or has expressed interest in trying their hand at brewing or distilling. From aspiring bartenders to someone who dreams of hosting the perfect happy hour, there are tons of bourbon lovers who need this kit ASAP, and it’s up to you to deliver it.

How does it work?

To start, cure your barrel then pour grain alcohol or neutral flavored vodka into the vessel along your Swish Barrel Essence (included). Give it a good shake to incorporate the ingredients then sit tight because in just two weeks time your one-of-a-kind blend will be aged to perfection and ready to serve straight from the tap.
