HERE ARE THE 10 MOST
UNUSUAL BOURBON GIFTS
FOR #CYBERMONDAY 2016
Most bourbon gifts are limited to either full bottles of whiskey or glasses to drink those full bottles out of. While I’m not complaining, if you want to stand out you will need to do something a little different this shopping season! We have rounded up the best and most unusual deals that we could find for CyberMonday to impress the bourbon lover in your life. You should
BOOKER’S BOURBON TABLE LAMP
You all know how I feel about Bookers (??). People can get pretty creative with what to do with those boxes that Booker’s comes in, but this is the most unusual use I have seen so far. This is a great looking, fully functional table lamp filled with corks and has a black matte woven shade.
A WHOLE FRIGGIN’ BOURBON BARREL
Nothing says you are about that #bourbonlife than owning one of the cradles that baby bourbon rests in! These are 100% real barrels that ship from the heart of bourbon country (Kentucky). Ask not, what you can do with a whole bourbon barrel, but instead ask, what a whole bourbon barrel can do with you!
A FROZEN DEATH STAR
Colder than my Ex-Wife’s heart, this death star melts slowly enough to keep your whiskey cold without diluting it. These ice molds create a great ice sphere without any leakage. Ability to destroy entire planets sold separately.
A 5 GALLON COPPER WHISKEY STILL
Who knows what could happen in the future. Regardless, if you don’t have your own still, you aren’t ready. I mean, how can you call yourself “self-reliant” if you have to rely on big bourbon to meet your needs? (P.S. If you are wondering how to make your own bourbon, check out our great guide on how to make bourbon)
Create your own bourbon with this 5 Gallon Copper Alembic Still (check the state and local laws before distilling)
BARREL STAVE BOURBON FLIGHT WITH FREE GLENCAIRN GLASSES
So this item made the list for the free 6 ounce glasses and for the fact that you can age bourbon in French wine barrels without taking away from the whiskey. Arguably. Either way, if you are setting up your home bar and entertaining guests, these staves will blow them away. The bottom of the stave is still stained red from wines that matured in them. The first time I saw these was at a local bar here in Louisville where they serve bourbon flights. I have always wanted one since then!
MAKERS MARK MANIAC SET
Do you love Makers Mark? DO you REALLY love Makers Mark? Do you know someone who won’t shut up about Makers Mark? This set will have them seeing red with their eyes closed! All the items come separately, but if you buy each item and bundle them all together, you got yourself a Makers Mark Maniac Set! Here is the breakdown – just click any link below to get the item:

SAINT BERNARD DOG COLLAR CHARRED OAK BARREL
Now theres a good boy! Since you are going to be following me around all day begging for turkey scraps, I might as well get something out of the deal as well. I might be able to come up with a new ‘Saint Bernard Aged Bourbon” – you know, like Jeffersons did with the ocean thing? You might think thats a dumb idea, but when you see it behind your bar, remember where you heard about it first.
BITTERS GIFT SET
Besides a little Kentucky Limestone water, there isnt too much else I put in my bourbon. I tend to like the flavor as is. But sometimes you come across a bad pour that needs to me mixed into a cocktail, and thats where bitters comes in. Back in the day, bitters were used as a medicinal substance to promote appetite or digestion. These days, it does that and magically transforms bad bourbon into decent cocktails. This set coes with all the flavors you see above, made right here in the United States with organic herbs and spices.
DIAMOND DECANTER WITH STAND
The wooden base is made in Kentucky (like all great things), and the glass is thick and strong. If you want to buy something for the bourbon lover in your life that will really “shine” (see what I did there?) then grab them one of these diamond decanters!
