Cruise Custom Flags – Bourbon Barrel American Flags
Chris Cruise is a United States veteran repurposing old bourbon barrels to make Cruise Custom Flags, American Flags out of wood. On a scale from 1-to-badass, these are badass.
“Thanks to Pinterest, my wife, Amber gave me a book of about 160 pages and I built our dining room table and that’s where it all started,” Said Cruise.
“I was a paratrooper in the 82nd airborne division, served in Operation Iraqi Freedom,” Says Cruise.
“Me being from Kentucky, bourbon, horse racing and all that and my husband being a veteran, we just decided to cross those paths,” Amber says.
“I often think about who I’m making the flag for which is pretty cool because usually they’re very patriotic or it’s usually a former service member and we’re putting the years of service in which they’ve served or their family members have served,” Chris said.
“The bourbon barrel staves once served a good purpose holding bourbon. So, we wanted to give veterans a new purpose once they get out of the military and find their new purpose because they once served a great purpose too,” Chris says.
