Blood Oath Kentucky Straight Bourbon
I’m excited an honored to share this new work, recently completed in early 2015. This effort included an original identity design, complete package design and support materials by David Cole Creative. Photos by LookatLao Studio.
This a very considered blend of aged Kentucky Bourbons. It’s a unique combination that will not be released again next year (There’s something different in the works, Pact No. 2, for next year). For this reason, each release will be a special, fleeting product with built-in scarcity. The producer has no loyalty to any one distiller, so the constituent bourbons can come from anywhere, rare and wonderful, famous and forgotten. That’s the Blood Oath: He will never reveal his sources, protecting their anonymity and thereby retaining allegiance only to the flavors, not the distillers. The package design is based on this concept of sworn secrecy; it’s a solemn contract between the producer and the consumer, complete with his signature at the bottom and an embossed seal of authenticity. Shipped in custom-made, fire-branded wooden crates with a letterpress-printed certificate of authenticity – every detail was thoughtfully considered and reflects the same attention to detail that went into production of the liquid inside the bottle.
The bourbon itself is fantastic and I look forward to watching its following grow as it is distributed and reviewed throughout 2015.
