Whiskey Wood was inspired by the connection between whiskey, wood and fire. The idea of reuniting the three for consumption was a "why not?" moment for Chad Greary, Whiskey Wood owner and creator, one night while sitting around a campfire with friends and family. The next day Chad went to work building on the idea.
After a great deal of research, several tests with different types of wood, and too many bottles of whiskey, the whiskey stirrer prototype was made. A group of whiskey and non-whiskey drinkers assembled to try the first 10 whiskey stir sticks, and cast a unanimous vote: The sticks refined the whiskey experience without altering the taste. Some thought it was the smell of charcoal versus alcohol that heightened the senses. It was enough for Chad to pursue further, dig deeper in the art of the spirit and fine tune the concept of Whiskey Wood. He has since continued to create whiskey inspired products for Whiskey Wood.
