A Mobile Bar Inspired by Bourbon

Issue 46 · Harvest · November 15, 2012

A southerner by origin, New York designer Brad Ford has combined his fond memories of camping and tailgate parties in his design of the Woody; a teardrop trailer with a kick—of bourbon, that is.

Bulleit bourbon, to be exact; in developing the Woody, Ford (a member of the Remodelista Architect/Designer Directory) found that the actual smells, colors, and taste of the bourbon itself became the main source of his inspiration. The wood-paneled outer shell and details are made from reclaimed oak bourbon casks, while the amber-colored honey brown leather seats will darken over time, in a manner similar to maturing bourbon. We think tailgating has just entered a new era.

N.B. The Bulleit Frontier Whiskey Woody-Tailgate Trailer is a Neiman Marcus Fantasy Gift and comes with a full year’s supply of Bulleit Bourbon and Bulleit Rye. Ten percent of the proceeds will go to The Foundation for AIDS Research.
