Love is in the air at Frankfort, Kentucky-based J. Mattingly 1845 Distillery as its team of cupids create handcrafted bourbon with the custom message of affection of your choice. The Mattingly family has been associated with distilling in Kentucky for almost two hundred years and now, six and seven-generation descendants Jeff and Cameron Mattingly have created what the distillery calls another industry first – a digital custom bourbon experience allowing gift givers unparalleled access to create their own made-to-order bourbon.
The online J. Mattingly 1845 Valentine’s Day Custom Bourbon Experience allows customers to select their favorite mash bill from hundreds of “Double-Staved” proprietary barrels selected by the Mattingly team of blenders, choose their bottle, label, closure (including wax colors of red, pink or white) and their own personal name for their creation.
“The online custom bourbon experience allows everyone to express their love with a customized bottle and label, allowing for heartfelt messages for the bourbon lover in your life. We’ve created orders of everything from marriage proposals to more casual notes of affection,” said Harry Richart, president, J. Mattingly 1845 Distillery. “Crafting a custom bottle of Kentucky bourbon is one of the most unique and highly personalized gifts for whatever situationship one is in. We also have gift cards available to order online so your sweetheart can customize their own bottle of bourbon, which would make a great date night experience.”
The digital J. Mattingly 1845 Holiday Custom Bourbon Experience is available online at jmattingly1845.com, and all orders placed by Feb. 2nd will arrive by Feb. 14th (shipping exclusions apply for some U.S. states).
