Deacon Giles Distillery is off to a great start! In the last four months we have been busy making booze, giving tours, pouring taste after taste and meeting all you lovely people. The experiences, thus far, have been nothing short of intoxicating (ha!). With winter winding down, and spring fast approaching, we are getting ready to start on a new project.
We’re about to begin our barrel-aging program and we would like you to help. We’re launching a Kickstarter campaign, giving you the chance to be directly involved. We have our sights set on beginning to age our rum, and if all goes well we’ll start on a spiced rum AND a rye whiskey. But to do that, first we need barrels – and that’s where you come in! The north shore community has been incredibly supportive and, by our numbers, are really digging our unique spirits. So we thought what better way to return the love than by inviting you to get involved. Your contributions will go directly to purchase our first round of oak barrels and the equipment needed to start the transformative process of taking our delicious rum to the next level.
To return the love, our campaign offers some truly unique opportunities besides the usual swag. We’re essentially throwing open our doors and giving you and your friends the chance to come hang out and work along side us at the distillery – including exclusive release parties, distilling classes, naming a barrel (which you get to take home once we’re done with it), even an opportunity to help develop your own booze. Our swag is on the next level too, including a one-time-only opportunity to get your own Deacon Giles employee work shirt, complete with your name embroidered on it (since sooo many of you have asked for them!).
We hope you are as excited as we are about this next chapter! Please take a minute to check out our Kickstarter and consider helping us begin our barrel-aging project.
Thank you in advance for supporting Deacon Giles Distillery. We look forward to meeting you and sharing a drink!
Jesse, Ian and Tyler
