About a year ago we launched a crowdfunding campaign for creators via Patreon.com. Over that time, we’ve raised enough money to completely overhaul the breakingbourbon.com website (update coming soon), and begin the development of additional resources we hope to make available at some point in the future.
We’re excited to announce new additional benefits and a new membership level available via Patreon!
The benefit we’re most excited about is a Breaking Bourbon Single Barrel Club where we select single barrels and then make those bottles available to our Patreon supporters on an ongoing basis. And that’s not all...because we want supporters to be involved we’ll be choosing one Patreon supporter to help us with each barrel selection!
We’ve developed a unique partnership agreement with retailers, and in so doing will enjoy the benefits of their acquisition and distribution. Our agreement with the retailers ensures we have final say in the barrels to be selected and provides Breaking Bourbon with advanced distribution priority so that those bottles can be made available to Patreon supporters by priority group. Our goal is to offer a wide range of available single barrel bourbons and whiskeys to supporters on an ongoing basis.
First up is is a 14 year Barrell Bourbon, which we have barrel samples for already and will be selecting a current Patreon supporter to help us make the choice! We’re partnering with Mash & Grape for this particular barrel.
Our Patreon page has been completely overhauled, and the new pledge level along with the additional benefits available to the existing pledge levels is best explained by a benefits infographic found there. More specific details can be found on the page as well in the written section, and we encourage you to reach out to us with any questions you have.
Please note these bottles will not be sold by Breaking Bourbon, but will be sold by retailers we partner with in order to fulfill the orders and ship the bottles directly to Patreon supporters. Breaking Bourbon will receive no compensation from our partner retailers under these agreements (with the exception of a single bottle from each barrel for editorial purposes). If you represent a retailer and ship to consumers and you’re interested in partnering just let us know!
