I recently discovered the Holy Grail of all things Southern: Bourbon & Boots.
A bunch of southern men (and one Yankee …. bless his heart) have created a website dedicated to small-batch, high-quality, unique products made in the South. This discovery makes me happier than a pig in slop. Afterall, I fit the target consumer of this website: not only do I love the South, but I was born and raised here. I value the tradespeople that produce quality items. Finally, above all, I value family and hospitality — two qualities the guys from B&B really appreciate. From the wonderful collection of Southern Stories to a wide array of unique products, I’m definitely going to be spending time (and a small fortune) at B&B. I hope Santa reads this blog post too, because I’ve included a few of my top picks:
I think it goes without saying that I love this necklace. My favorite word is even dressed up with a pearl. =) As for the t-shirt, it’s funny …. and true. I believe in holy spirits. Jesus *DID* turn water into wine.
I love anything with Kentucky on it. As a tried-and-true Southern, I’m a fan of Johnny Cash and I know how to shoot too.
Repurposed bottles filled with wax smelling like Pinot, count me in! Holy Moses, this oyster knife is mother-shuckin’ serious.
While I don’t drink goat’s milk, I do love goat’s milk cheese. This cologne has piqued my interest as it’s described as a *real man’s* cologne. Mmmk.
I think I better go and get started on baking and cooking for Santa. Mama always said the best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. The Santa that I know likes roast and tators, tenderloin, brisket, and lemon cookies, red velvet cupcakes, and granola bars.
This post is not in any way associated with a paid promotion or advertisement for Bourbon & Boots. These guys, probably Arkansas Razorback fans, don’t know who I am or that I even exist on this planet as a true blue University of Kentucky Wildcat fan. (Bless their hearts.) I’m just sharing this information in hopes that someone might be interested … and Santa finds my wish-list before December 24. Amen.
