WHO WE ARE

Breaking Bourbon was created by three lifelong friends who share a passion for everything bourbon. Since launch in 2014, the journey has been nothing short of spectacular. We’ve met a lot of great people, connected with many readers on a personal level, and experienced tremendous growth of our audience. As we look to the future, our goal is clear. We want to make Breaking Bourbon the best and most trusted resource for bourbon enthusiasts, period. Transforming our ideas into a reality is going to require working with more than just our passion for the hobby. We know it’s a huge ask, but if you believe in us and want to participate in helping make Breaking Bourbon even better, we’ve got some cool prizes to say thank you and will be forever honored by your generosity.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for supporting Breaking Bourbon.

Nick, Eric & Jordan
Breaking Bourbon Co-Founders



GET EXCLUSIVE STUFF!


$1/month or more


**NEW SUPPORTER LEVEL** You get to take part in helping develop some of the content we create! Topics will include what bourbons we review, topics to write about, reader survey creation, and more. Our goal is to offer one choice or topic per month - you vote or provide input on the topic, and then we tally the votes, review the feedback, and put it into action with a target of completion by the end of the following month. No minimum pledge time applies - as long as you’re an active supporter pledging $1 or more per month at the time you’ll get a chance to participate.


$2/month or more

We’ll send Release Calendar updates right to your inbox so you’ll never miss an update! And don’t worry, you’ll get to take part in content creation too. Keeping our Bourbon & American Whiskey Release Calendar up to date is a tedious and ongoing process. We talk with distillery contacts and inside connections, scour the web and social media, and follow TTB label approvals very closely in order to keep up with bourbon’s ever changing releases. We update constantly, and if you pledge at least $2 per month we’ll email you every single time we do an update so you’ll never miss an update again! Who knows, we might even include some inside information not posted online from time to time! No minimum pledge time requirement applies - as long as you’re an active supporter pledging $2 or more per month you’ll receive the updates.


$3/month or more

We’ll send you a Patreon exclusive Breaking Bourbon reusable tasting sheet! In addition to the Release Calendar update emails and taking part in content we create, we’ll send you our custom designed, reusable tasting sheet. Capture the aromas and flavors of each and every bourbon you experience, then snap a pic with your phone and start building your own digital tasting note library. Share your experience with us by posting on social media and tagging us @breakingbourbon. Wipe the tasting sheet clean and you’re ready for your next pour! You must pledge at this level for 6 consecutive months to receive the tasting sheet, though we extend a sincere thank you and hope you continue supporting us after that.


$7/month or more

We’ll send you a Patreon exclusive Breaking Bourbon engraved glencairn! In addition to receiving our reusable tasting sheet, Release Calendar update emails and taking part in content we create, we’ll send you our custom engraved glencairn. Sure you probably don’t need another glencairn, but this isn’t just any glencairn. We created Breaking Bourbon to embody everything that is bourbon, and our glencairn symbolizes how awesome the bourbon enthusiast hobby can be, serving as a constant reminder every time you enjoy a pour. You must pledge at this level for 6 consecutive months to receive the glencairn, though we hope you continue supporting us and can’t thank you enough for your generosity.


$14/month or more


We’ll add another Patreon exclusive Breaking Bourbon glencairn and tasting sheet to the mix! The best part about bourbon is sharing with a friend. At this pledge level, you’ll receive Release Calendar update emails, take part in the content we create, and receive not just one, but a total of two Patreon exclusive Breaking Bourbon engraved glencairns and two Patreon exclusive Breaking Bourbon reusable tasting sheets! Now this is really going above and beyond the call of duty, and even though you must pledge at this level for 6 consecutive months to receive the additional glencairn and tasting sheet, we will be forever grateful to you if you’re able to keep pledging. Only those with bourbon in their blood, and warmth of spirit in their hearts, could achieve such a feat of generosity.


Please note that physical prizes are limited to United States shipping addresses only. If you reside in another country, please contact us prior to pledging if you are interested in receiving a shipped prize. Physical prizes ship after 6 consecutive months of pledging at the specified level.

Goals
$708 of $1,000 per month
We've got more ideas than we know what to do with...but with those ideas comes the demand for time and money. The countless hours we spend is a labor of love, so time isn't an issue (though our wives might say otherwise!). But in order to take Breaking Bourbon to the next level we need to raise funds so we can accomplish the things we have our sights set on. Supporting us here goes a long way towards helping us realize those goals, and every little bit counts more than you might think. Join us in helping cultivate a valuable resource for bourbon drinkers everywhere.
