What’s not a mystery is the unbridled joy of a grown ass man - inside of a giant floatation device - bobbing atop some golden liquid - sloshing around the back of a truck - while it rumbles and bounces across the property.
Friday, November 20th, 2020
Rex just turned 40. It happened on the 18th. He woke up, drove his kids to school, pulled into the distillery - and had Daniel fulfill a birthday wish.

Before we go further, I should clarify that this wasn’t just any birthday wish. It was a 40th birthday wish. And the most honorable and ancient whisk(e)y traditions demand that 40th birthday wishes always be granted. According to Rex, it’s written in the scrolls - or something.

Here’s where things get tricky. I’m not a lawyer. And far be it from me to talk out of school. So let me try to paint you a picture while remaining sufficiently vague.

We’re going full Monet here. ((a joke for the art-nerds.))

Whether or not the pickup truck bed was filled with real whiskey, stunt whiskey, or some kind of perverse blend shall forever remain a mystery.

What’s not a mystery is the unbridled joy of a grown ass man - inside of a giant floatation device - bobbing atop some golden liquid - sloshing around the back of a truck - while it rumbles and bounces across the property.

Should have worn goggles... Allegedly.
