MINNEAPOLIS (PRWEB) December 19, 2017
Whiskey glass and accessory manufacturer SipDark is excited to announce that its latest product, a crowdfunded hand-carved oak whiskey glass, reached full funding within 24 hours of the project's placement on Kickstarter. The company expects to begin delivery in January 2018.
Whiskey distillers and aficionados prize oak wood for the unique flavor characteristics it imparts. Distilleries have traditionally used oak barrels to age whiskey for centuries. Using an oak vessel is a step towards further enhancing the experience of drinking high quality whiskey.
As the first drinking vessel of its kind, the SipDark American Oak Whiskey Glass offers a profoundly pleasurable experience when compared with glass vessels traditionally used when drinking whiskey. Starting with a classic Scottish whiskey glass shape, the hand-lathed oak glass is sealed with a beeswax finish that increases the beverage's aromatic potential. As an additional benefit, it is far more durable than all but the toughest glass.
Darrell Kramin, one of the two founding partners of SipDark, explains that this project has been in the works for years, and that the company spent this time testing many shapes and compositions for what would become the American Oak Whiskey Glass.
“We are extremely fortunate to have so quickly funded this project after spending years perfecting it. It's evident that whiskey lovers around the world value the drinking experience this innovative product offers, and SipDark is committed to making the American Oak Whiskey Glass a household name.” Darrell Kramin, President & CEO, SipDark
While the project's original funding goal of $5,000 was met within a day of posting, it has since surged in popularity, with more than 780 backers pushing the overall amount beyond $30,000. The Kickstarter campaign ends on January 1st, 2018.
SipDark designs whiskey-themed products and accessories that improve the nuanced taste of the world's finest whiskeys. From freezer-ready stainless steel whiskey stones that chill beverages without diluting them with water to handcrafted whiskey specialty whiskey glasses, SipDark ensures customers are ready to enjoy fine beverages during life's greatest moments and adventures.
