The Origin Story
Discovering Bourbon Baggers: How a Simple Idea Came About
Picture this: a journey that starts with a love for bourbon, takes a detour through China, and culminates in an amazingly simple way to turn your weeknight bourbon into one as good as your weekend bourbon. Let me share the origin story of Bourbon Baggers – a tale of seemingly random connections that came together to change your Bourbon experience.
A Taste for Adventure: Like you, I've got a growing, but modest bourbon collection, and a desire not to get into the tedious practice of hunting for bottles unobtainable. One day I got sucked into Amazon as we all do, and a small aging barrel seemed like the perfect experiment to try something new without the chase. Unfortunately, despite my efforts, I lost close to two full bottles from a small leak. But what remained in the bottle convinced me the idea had merit.
The Toasted Bourbon Revelation: Fast forward to a happy hour with colleagues, and the stars aligned in an entirely unforeseen way. Elijah Craig Toasted barrel was on the menu, leading to a rather overdone sampling of toasted barrel bourbon. We racked up a hell of a bar tab and the table killed a few different bottles of toasted barrel bourbons. Hooked as I was, I tried to get a bottle of anything toasted in an actual liquor store – a struggle familiar to every bourbon lover seeking the exceptional.
A Twist of Fate, A Sip of Tea: Years ago, I used to travel on business to China and found an appreciation for loose leaf tea. To me, loose leaf tea was a pain in the rear, and they didn't sell the finer stuff in bags. I tried things like those mesh strainer balls, but the inconvenience kept it from being a habit. I'm an American. I wanted a tea bag.
Why Not Bourbon?: While enjoying a weekday sip of bagged tea, the spark ignited. The concept of Bourbon Baggers was born – a tea bag for bourbon to get me the toasted oak flavor that I so desired. Hours of research and experimentation followed, as the journey led through the intricate processes of aging and toasting. Trial and error, dedication, and an unwavering commitment to perfection gradually unveiled the formula that would transform my weeknight bourbon enjoyment.
