The Largest American Flag Constructed From Veteran Signed Red, White, and Blue Corn Bourbon Barrels

Jeptha Creed Distillery and Cruise Customs Flags Collab To Be Unveiled On June 14th
Jeptha Creed Distillery Opened Their Doors On Veterans Day 2016

PRESS RELEASE: (Shelbyville, KY) Jeptha Creed Distillery opened its doors to the public on November 11th, 2016. Serendipitously, their grand opening coincided with Veterans Day. In honor of this shared date, Jeptha Creed provides visiting Veterans and active military the opportunity to sign their name on an aging barrel of red, white, and blue corn bourbon. After these barrels age for at least 4 years – they are dumped, bottled, and placed in the gift shop for purchase. A portion of every purchase is donated to a local Veteran organization that directly assists Veterans. Jeptha Creed released their first batch of this bourbon last year and recognized that the used barrels provided another opportunity to honor Veterans. To accomplish this, Jeptha Creed has partnered with local Veteran-owned-and-operated business, Cruise Customs Flags, to repurpose the barrels into the largest bourbon barrel American flag ever made.

Chris Cruise Was One Of The First To Sign A Barrel

Chris Cruise, owner of Cruise Customs, was one of the first individuals to sign a red, white, and blue bourbon barrel in 2017 when he was just starting the company. His company specializes in custom flags produced from repurposed bourbon barrels. Six years after signing an early Jeptha Creed barrel, his company is crafting this large flag including the actual barrel he signed. This flag will be the biggest American flag ever constructed from bourbon barrels. Cruise takes pride in this opportunity, saying, “it really feels like it’s coming full circle; that we are producing the largest flag ever made from bourbon barrels and it will include a barrel I signed.”

The flag will be comprised of several signed barrels and will have shelves to display challenge coins gifted to the Nethery family by various government officials and Veterans that have visited. Once completed, Jeptha Creed will be displaying the massive American tribute in their visitor’s center. In addition to the large showpiece, Cruise plans to make several smaller ‘Lieutenant flags’ from the signed barrels, which will be available for purchase in the Jeptha Creed gift shop.

About Cruise Customs

Cruise Customs Flags began with a passion for the American flag & all that it symbolizes. US Military veteran & Co-Owner, Chris Cruise, understands well the value of patriotism. Seeking a meaningful way to express that, Chris & his wife, Amber, started producing hand-crafted American flags. Each flag is hand-crafted by veterans from the military. Using repurposed Kentucky bourbon barrels, no two flags look exactly alike & are thoughtfully made to capture each customer’s personal story of patriotism. In short we find new purpose for veterans and bourbon barrels
