"Crown Royal's Extra Rare Heritage Blend is Fit For A Queen"
Crown Royal Creates Its Most Expensive Whisky
Ever to Commemorate Queen Elizabeth II's visit
to the 2007 Kentucky Derby.  I had the incredibly
distinct honor  to create four pieces of barrel art  for
this very special commemoration.  Two of the barrel
heads were used in the actual barrel that will be
presented to Her Majesty by
Crown Royal along with a
special decanter. The process of burning the images
onto the wood is slow and tedious, taking about 10
hours to complete each of these barrel heads.

On May 4, 2007, one of the barrel heads created to
commemorate Her Majesty's visit was placed on
permanent display at the
Kentucky Derby Museum.
My wife Vicki and I were present when the barrel head
and a commemorative decanter were sealed forever,
never again to be touched by human hands.

Jim Beam, and I pose with Jim Beam's® 10
millionth barrel.  Fred filled the barrel of  bourbon
at a
ceremony to honor the landmark
achievement on February 14, 2005 at the
Clermont, Kentucky distillery where it will be seen
for the last time until 2009. Immediately following
its official sealing, the barrel made its way to a
rack house where it will be stored and aged for
four years.

Jim Beam's 10 millionth barrel
In 2005, I was commissioned to create a very
special barrel head for
Jim Beam®, who just
happened to be filling their
ten millionth barrel!
Few things still exist that are made the slow,
old-fashioned way,
by hand.  Just like fine
whisky and the barrels that age it, my barrel
art is made the same old-fashioned way.  It
is a process that takes hours, even days
sometimes, to complete.  
Some things just
can’t be rushed......
