About this project
Do us a favor. Listen to this:
If you like what you hear, play this at the same time...
And if you can... try and picture this:
Delicious sizzling bacon dropped right into a freshly opened bottle of your favorite bourbon.
Sound too good to be true?
Well, ladies and gentlemen, dream no more. May we proudly introduce our greatest invention...
Ol' Major Bacon Bourbon
Bacon has a rich (and fatty) history dating back before the times of Middle English. Originally, bacon or 'bacoun' was a term which referred to pork of all varieties.
Well, we think that's ridiculous, and we are extremely appreciative that we don't live in the Middle Ages... That would suck.
Ol’ Major Bacon Bourbon is exactly what it sounds like: bacon combined with bourbon. Ol’ Major will be the world’s first commercially available bottled bacon bourbon.
We infuse award winning, barrel aged bourbon with delicious, all natural bacon to create a truly unique and tasty spirit. We will be blending and bottling Ol’ Major Bacon Bourbon in Nashville, Tennessee, one of the most hollowed grounds of the American Whiskey tradition.
As 'Murican as Bacon Bourbon!
We have great gifts for you too! Check out our patented bottle opener sunglasses:
Without bourbon, bacon, or even a bottle, a product was born online and you - the internet - broke our website by spreading the word on social media! Just two days after our website found its way online, the puny little server our site was on timed out.
We spent the next 20 months perfecting the recipe, getting approvals from the FDA and the TTB (the agency in charge of alcohol and spirits in the USA) and test marketing our brand.
What makes us different from many Kickstarter projects is that we ALREADY invested a significant amount to lay the groundwork to launch our product. We have signed up distributors (no easy task!) in over a dozen states throughout the country, and have access to the rest of the U.S., Canada and Europe (UK, Germany & France to begin with). This means that you will get to enjoy Ol’ Major Bacon Bourbon very shortly after our Kickstarter project is (hopefully!) funded successfully.
In order to produce enough product for our launch, we will need to:
- Pay up front for blending, bottling and labeling at our selected Tennessee distillery
- Pay for warehousing, logistics and Federal Excise taxes
- Set up promotional and distribution budgets with our distributors
Today, we are just a couple of months away from releasing our delicious product into the world, but we need your help! The bourbon is aging, the bacon is sizzling, and all we have to do is get it into the bottles to ship out to a store near you!
We know you will love our product - we just need one last push to get from our distillery to the shelf! Help us, 'Murican Patriots!
The more money we raise, the more we can afford to produce and the sooner we can launch in all 50 states and Europe.
Here is a breakdown of the amount we feel we need to raise, to properly expand to different markets around the country:
Risks and challenges
We are competing with established brands with deep pockets who do whatever they can to keep new products from being successful. We will combine our industry experience and network with the power of bacon and bourbon. This is a huge undertaking, but we have the right product and the right team to make Ol’ Major Bacon Bourbon the smash hit it was always destined to be!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
