Rex, Hands, and Fancy Dan just made an 8 foot long crossbow out of a barrel stave, 2 long boards, and super-strong surgical tubing. The best part? It works…

The efficacy of the entire project was questionable, right up until it launched a 12 foot aluminum "bolt" into the stratosphere. The crossbow (ballista?) must be blessed by the Great Whisk(e)y Spirits, because it shoots like a dream - but it looks janky-as-hell. You’ll see what I mean when it appears in an upcoming Tribe episode.

Probably 2-3 weeks away.

The to-do list around here can often leave you feeling like a one-legged man in an ass kicking contest. It’s tempting to constantly postpone shenanigans in the face of seriously-responsible-adult-bullshit. But yah, this was definitely worth pausing the productivity for a bit of levity.

There have been some interesting developments in the Texas whiskey world. Next week I pull back the curtain on 1) an exciting opportunity 2) a scary possibility and 3) how to get FREE shipping on the Whiskey Tribe’s new merch store (launching this fall).

[+] Dewar’s Whisky First Air Mailed With Help Of Hinkler

A bottle of Dewar’s Whisky that was the first air mailed whisky to Australia is on display at the Hinkler Hall of Aviation.

Pioneer aviator Bert Hinkler was the first person to fly solo from England to Australia, and on this flight he carried the first case of whisky that was air mailed to Australia.

Hinkler flew solo in his Avro Avian from England to Australia between 7 and 22 February 1928 in record time…


[+] A Bourbon Aged In Rare Japanese Whisky Barrels Is About To Be Released

There’s always another road to travel when it comes to bourbon, and whiskey in general. Not that long ago, mash bills (recipes) for bourbon were fairly static and barrel aging was focused on toasted new American Oak. Then the whiskey revolution happened and now anything is possible — as a new generation endlessly toys with mash bills and boldly loads their juice into barrels from every corner of the world…
