America the Beautiful: Finding Originality in American Luxury with Blanton's Bourbon
It was 1776 when the very first design of American origin was signed into order. Since its inception, it has set a standard for similar documents to which other countries strive to reach. Being at the forefront of technology, the arts, music, and industrial design, the United States did not let the Declaration of Independence be the last of the cultural innovations to come from American thinkers. Influenced by Jazz and the Blues, it was from the electric guitar of songwriter Chuck Berry that Rock and Roll came to be. From a garage in New Mexico came the very first personal computer, the MITS Atair 8800 (Bill Gates was not the first). Abstract Impressionism, an artistic style meant to physically represent what was within the artist, found its birth on US soils before gaining widespread international influence. It was from Major William Le Baron Jenney in the great city of Chicago that the modern skyscraper finds its roots.
And in a warehouse in Kentucky came Blanton's, the worlds first single barrel Bourbon.
To celebrate National Bourbon Day, what DCoopMedia believes should be considered a bank holiday, #DesignLUX along with Blanton's Bourbon will leave our passports at home and take a cross country journey, exploring the originality of craftsmen, artists, and inventors responsible for the most innovative of American thought. We'll wax nostalgic, examining the Luxury products, designs, and ideas that make the people of the United States so special while looking into the inspiration behind the Made in America movement. Not to mention, we'll touch on just how to encourage and keep American cultural innovations alive for future generations. Join us this Thursday, June 11th at 1pmPT/4pmET.
Stay tuned early this week for our special Bourbon centric giveaway announcement!
