Support Frontline Medical Workers With This Custom Bourbon Barrel American Flag

Cruise Custom Flags is one of the many companies across the United States that has found a way to create products for the whiskey lifestyle. In this case, this veteran run operation out of Kentucky repurposes old bourbon barrels into beautiful wooden American flags worth hanging over anyone’s home bar. Now, in a gesture of giving back to those medical professionals on the frontlines of combatting the coronavirus pandemic, a limited edition offering has been unveiled that will see the proceeds from its sale go towards supporting them.

The America One Heartbeat flag, as first reported upon by WDRB, is a veteran handcrafted American flag made from repurposed bourbon barrels. It is a derivate of their more regular offerings in that it showcases “a heart rhythm on the stripe below the stars.” Each one is handcrafted in Louisville by veterans “who have found therapy in woodworking.”

“Each bourbon barrel wooden flag we produce is different but beautiful in its own way,” notes Cruise Custom Flags of this release. “The grain of the wood, the characteristics of the rustic white oak, and the raised elements that are featured in our flags will truly be a conversation piece in your home. ”

The limited edition flags measure 8″ x 14″ and are made to order, thus taking 1-2 weeks for shipping after they are ordered. The price for this particular one is $60, and it is noted that “all profits from this flag will go towards the medical community, ” which in this case is University of Louisville Healthcare. It truly seems to be a win-win in purchasing one of these, as you are supporting both a veteran run business helping other veterans as well as providing financial support to medical professionals needing an extra hand from the public right now as they strive to keep us all safe.
