I’ve been developing the new (upcoming) Whiskey Tribe website with Rex. It’s mostly been writing, explaining, linking. You know, typical website stuff. The upcoming site will (hopefully) act as a central hub for all-things-Whiskey-Tribe when it eventually launches.

The current website has always been a bare-bones affair. We’re working on something more comprehensive. This kind of thing is usually highly detailed and tedious - no surprises there.

What I didn’t expect was the sheer size of our joint whisk(e)y adventure. Once all the moving pieces of this Tribe were collected and plugged in, I gotta admit - I was stunned by the scale of everything we’ve been doing.

Between the…
  • 6 weekly video productions
  • social groups
  • patreon updates / quests / shipments
  • distillery projects
  • merch
  • barrel management
  • special events
  • meetups
  • this newsletter

...and all the employees and volunteers it takes to…
  • Make
  • Moderate
  • Shoot
  • Edit
  • Distill
  • Design
  • Bottle
  • Coordinate
  • Deliver

...things in a timely manner - I’m amazed at how far we’ve come in such a short time.

I don’t often look back. Mostly because my bones feel how far we still need to go. But let’s stop and soak in the view for a minute.

It’s pretty great… And we’re just getting started, MB.

Crowded Barrel T-Shirt

Hate to say it, but ceremonial whisk(e)y cult robes just aren’t appropriate in some situations. Crazy. I know.

Fortunately, the sleek and stylish Crowded Barrel t-shirt is here to rock the full spectrum of Magnificence in a more subtle form.

Upfront, the bear and eagle whisk(e)y spirits offer +9 arcane shielding over your heart. The back takes it up a notch with a giant sigil CB sigil. It comes fully powered up, and ready to launch your Magnificent butt into rare pours and sketchy shenanigans.
Ian Piggott is our unofficial whiskey article curator. Basically he posts a bunch of great whiskey article links in the Facebook group, and we go steal them and post them in the newsletter. Thanks Ian :-)

[+] Which Type of Corn Makes the Best Whiskey?

Look out over several acres of corn grown on John Sawyer’s farm and you probably wouldn't notice anything out of the ordinary—vibrant green stalks growing in tidy rows set against a backdrop of the Central Texas sky.

But something different is going on deep inside these plants, on a genetic level. Something that, when turned into whiskey, creates a distinctive flavor…


[+] Single Malts: How Scotland’s Finest Came Into Being

If you ask anyone to think of Scotland and make a list of whatever comes to mind, that list will no doubt include Tartan kilts, Bagpipes, Haggis, or the Loch Ness Monster, but right at the top of that list will most likely be our most famous export of all… Scotch whisky!


[+] NKU History Students Partnering With Five Kentucky Counties To Research The Original Bourbon Journey
