Running a website is expensive, and the money to do it has to come from somewhere. Straightbourbon.com™ does not accept advertising. We don't promote products in exchange for "favors". Our sole revenue stream is branded merchandise sales, and all proceeds from the sale of Straightbourbon.com branded swag go directly to support the continued operation of the site and community.
We only want the highest quality swag associated with the Straightbourbon brand, and we expend a lot of effort to make that happen. Whenever possible, we use USA sourced goods and services, but always the highest quality available. If it bears the Straightbourbon.com brand, you can rest assured you've got a premium item in your hands.
