Age whiskey in a day, not years.
Traditional whiskey takes 6-12 years to mature in oak barrels. We replicate that aging process in one day by rapidly accelerating the pressure and temperature cycles that draw flavor out of wood. Our technology also can use an array of woods never before possible – like black cherry & hickory – and lets us iterate on new tastes every day until perfected (traditional whiskey takes 6+ years to even try out a new product). We’re proving that consumers buy rapidly-aged whiskey with new flavors.
We aim to out-compete traditional distilleries, reinvigorate the craft spirit
movement, and become the world’s largest producer of “just in time” whiskey. The incumbents are stuck with tradition and have massive supply shortages. They’ve done a poor job predicting demand a decade out, plus spend a small fortune holding inventory until then. Not constrained by oak, we aim to dominate the fastest-growing segment of the $25 billion whiskey market: premium flavor extensions. But aged in a day.

First thing we do is take in clear spirits that have only sat in an oak barrel for less than a day. This is the base of our bourbon whiskey.
We put carefully measured wood segments into a pressure capable tank and move the clear alcohol in and out of the pore structure of the wood like a sponge.
It’s made differently but tastes amazing. Our whiskey focuses on concentrating flavor rather than sticking to decades’ old methods.
On March 1st of 2013, using disruptive and controversial technology, we shipped our first bottle of bourbon whiskey. 100 Proof, it was a dark and flavorful bourbon with the word Cleveland printed in big bold letters right on the front of bottle.
The critics and self-proclaimed experts loudly claimed that what we were doing was wrong. They told us not to rock the boat. They said it was too radical a change, that we should respect tradition, get back in line and make whiskey the same way as everyone else.
We don’t agree.
Despite the controversy and the critics, we’ve been winning Gold Medals at competitions around the world and were recently named Whiskey Distillery Innovator of the Year at the Berlin International Spirits Competition. Today we proudly sell our whiskies in 13 States as well as in Germany, France, Switzerland and Belgium. We’ve also just shipped our first order to Japan.
We’ve been fortunate to attract angel investment from both “radical thinking” individuals and small investment groups but until now the regulations prohibited us from selling shares to the very people that buy our whiskey. Not just “accredited investors” but real people, our customers and supporters that have helped us build this company.
Okay, here’s where I cut to the chase. I’m asking you become part of the disruption, to embrace the controversy and most importantly to help us challenge the status-quo and spread the word.
Please join our group of radical investors, become one of the owners and of course, drink our whiskey.
