Bourbon Zeppelin is creating an Email Magazine

Bourbon Zeppelin was launched on June 1, 2016 as the email magazine written for bourbon fans, by bourbon fans. The goal of the publication was never too lofty. We simply wanted to provide bourbon-focused content we would want to read.

The potential to advertise in an email magazine focused on bourbon was there almost from the date we launched. After speaking to several members of the team, we simply felt it wasn't right for us. It could skew our ability to make unbiased reviews, or we might focus too much content on those willing to advertise.

We elected to go the route of an ad-free publication (we do promote our ABV Network podcast partners, but take no advertising for BZ). Still, there are legitimate expenses in running a free magazine. There are contest mailings, samples mailed for reviews and more. One of the biggest expenses looms as we continue to become more popular: monthly fees to send out emails once we surpass 2,000 individuals in our database.

No one is looking to get rich off of Bourbon Zeppelin, just cover expenses. If we can do that, we can guarantee our ability to deliver the fun and quality content you've grown to love. It's the best possible scenario: donate if you can, enjoy BZ guilt-free if you cannot.

We appreciate your support and interest in our publication.
