About this project
THE WAY WHISKEY SHOULD BE, CLEAN AND SIMPLE!
(Remember to check the updates tab just above in order to get more info about our project)
BOONE, BOURBON AND WHITE WHISKEY(moonshine).
It was 244 years ago that Daniel Boone first set his eyes on what would become the area we know and love as the Bluegrass Region of Kentucky. His description of the area as, “the beautiful level of Kentucky” still resonates with residents who call it home.
It was on this exploration that Daniel Boone camped on a creek he lovingly named for a city from a book he read on his travels. That book, "Gulliver's Travels," in a lot of ways, mimicked the exploits that Boone himself endured while traveling into unknown country. The city in "Gulliver's Travels" was called, "Lorbrulgrud," and from that name came Lulbegrud Creek (lul • be • grud krík).
With that heritage as a guide, we plan to create a craft distillery that will produce flavored white whiskey(moonshine) and a bourbon product that is true to its roots, while reflecting a step forward in the way we think about what we drink.
With every passing day, it grows more important then ever to really focus on what we eat and drink, where it comes from, and who is making it. The basic ingredients of a good whiskey are the grains and the water. With those ingredients in mind, we plan to produce our product from locally sourced grains that we know have been unadulterated, allowing us to follow in the footsteps of the way whiskey used to be made, the NON-GMO, Organic way.
Using clean grains as our base, we'll be able to provide whiskey lovers everywhere with a product that gives the best flavor and taste, that you can drink knowing it was produced with the highest quality.
What will your funds be used for?
Opening a startup craft bourbon and whiskey distillery is no small task. Your contribution will go a long way in getting us where we need to be in this project.
- Equipment - After 2 years of research, discussions with other distillers, tons of reading, crying and some conflict resolution, we narrowed down our equipment to the basics we need to start-up. Some of your contribution will help secure that equipment so we can hit the ground...uh...distillin?!
- The product - The most important part will be sourcing the best grains, and flavors for the product, as well as the bottles, labels, and other items needed to be in business as a distillery. We've dug our fingers to the bone finding the right farmers, printers, and bottle makers who fit with the ideal of what we will accomplish. Some of your contribution will be used to help order these items to begin making our first batch of whiskey!
Making the Product - Making whiskey is a time-consuming process, and can take a lot to explain, we hope this whiskey infographic helps!
Who will be producing it? The owner of course! When it comes to a craft distillery you can bet that the owner is always hands on. You're starting out small so you have to be as hands on as possible. Heck, not only does he have to make the product, he may even have to use a stapler or even type something! See the owners Bio to the right!
$45,000 reached - what then? Well, let's not stop there! If we reach this goal, our next goal will be $50,000. If we reach $50,000, we'll throw in an extra reward for those who contribute over $100. What's the reward? Anyone who contributes over $100 and helps us meet a $50,000 goal will become a part of the Lulbegrud Creek Pioneers. You'll get inside info on the brand like any new distribution, activities at the distillery, new products and other information that will help us interact with you on a personal level!
To help you choose a level you may want to contribute at, we are including some images of your rewards. Remember, all hats, shirts, decanters, glasses, flasks, and coasters, will come with the Lulbegrud Creek logo either embroidered or imprinted on it. (we're kinda partial to it anyway!)
Risks and challenges
If the world were a perfect place it would all be glitter and unicorns, but as we all know, the world is not a perfect place. There are many obstacles that can occur when planning a business. the builder can fall behind, the product can go bad. Any number of things can happen. So we have a plan in place to help us through those moments to make sure our supporters know they are supporting a successfully planned project.
Building - While we can't discuss the building we are pursuing, we can tell you that it links to the history of the area. We are working with a builder who will help us bring it up to working order and open it with-in a year.
Equipment - It takes some time to research and find the right equipment. Luckily we've already done that. Over a period of two years, we've researched every last piece of equipment. We know who makes it and how they make it, where it's coming from and how long it will take to get it.
Bottles, Labels, Printing - Since our owner is a Graphic Designer who has years of experience in marketing and design, this was the easy part! We've selected a great bottle to represent our brand, designed a label that will jump off the shelf, and we've poured over every last detail of their appearance together to make sure it really sings!
We've covered our bases and even added extra just in case. It takes years of planning to start a business right, and with a strong business, marketing and distribution plan we know we're ready!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
