Why do you call your whiskey "Inspired"?

Two reasons.  The first is because we place a spire of wood in the bottle. Hence in-spired whiskey.  The second is a Bible story.  In Genesis 1, God created the Heavens and Earth by speaking, but in Genesis 2, when He created Mankind, He used His hands.  He took the dust of the ground and formed us. Next, he brought us to life by breathing His life into us, or inspiring us.  Similarly, we as (small “c”) creators, follow (the big “C”, Creator) God's creative lead by taking elements of the Earth, corn, rye and barley and we make a spirit, whiskey, and in so doing figuratively breathe life into our whiskey, which the spire resting in the bottle represents this inspiration

 

Why do you feature makers?

 Makers are unique. Purposeful. Raw. Makers are dreamers, visionaries, and captivating. They recognize there's something in them, bigger than them, deliberately placed inside that needs to come out. We believe in makers so much that we poured our heart and soul into them. Every photo you see and every story you read on our website is of an actual maker, telling their actual story, pursuing their actual craft.  No models or scripts needed.
