Timber Creek Giveaway their Bourbon Blending Kit with 30AEats
I thought I knew most of what went on with the regions food and drink scene. Though, I missed out on the fact that we have Timber Creek Distillery located on a family farm just north of Destin in Crestview.
Finding the presence of a high-quality craft distillery located in the backwoods of Northwest Florida was music to my ears, or rather taste buds.
Camden Ford, one of the two owners and President of Timber Creek Distillery, stopped by my house the other day with some loot. The good stuff that also included a Bourbon Blending Kit which I immediately opened and began sampling.
I thought it was the perfect holiday gift for those over 21 who enjoy high quality spirits. So, he offered one for me to give away on 30AEats.com (see Rafflecopter below).
Timber Creek as a company formed in 2014 when the master distiller, Aaron Barnes, a Panhandle native now living in Destin, discovered that Camden, his neighbor, had a mutual interest in home beer brewing. Camden said, ” My family had recently moved into our vacation home to ease our lifestyle from California where I had been working for over 15 years in an engineering position in Silicon Valley. Aaron and I hit it off and decided to open a craft distillery.” Barnes (a real estate broker) began the search for possible locations putting their dream in motion. He found it on the banks of Juniper Creek in Crestview, in a barn behind his parents 26,000 square foot home, the home that appears on all of the Timber Creek bottles.
The limited edition Bourbon Blending Kit
It features a selection of 100 percent single grain whiskeys and the Timber Creek Bourbon Blending Guide that walks consumers through the Timber Creek process, explains how the different grains contribute to the flavor of each bourbon, and shows exactly how to blend the different whiskeys. Also included is a list of mash bills so connoisseurs can easily replicate the recipes for their favorite bourbon brand. How cool is that?
And the Grain…
Each grain that is bottled is milled, mashed, distilled, barreled and then aged. The barrels are hand-picked and the whiskeys are blended to create their unique bourbon flavor profile.
Camden said, “Craft Distilleries are able to produce high-quality bourbon. However, mass production techniques flood today’s bourbon industry by a handful of large companies. As a craft distillery, Timber Creek can experiment with new techniques and push the boundaries of innovation. We aim to lead the way by offering new flavor profiles and new whiskey experiences to customers.”
