Hair of the Dog Whiskey Soap: The soap that almost killed us

From the beginning of our company, we knew we wanted to create whiskey soap. There were very few whiskey soaps in the world, and the whiskey soaps that existed smelled more like vanilla or butterscotch. We knew that straight-up whiskey was going to frighten people away, but if we could get a blend of whiskey and something kind of sweet and soothing, we'd be making something really special. But it wasn't so easy. In fact, the first batch of whiskey soap turned out so badly I wrote a blog post about it. And that blog post was so popular that I wrote yet another blog post about our failed whiskey soap. And after the "Oppenheimer of Soap" incident, you might think we would give up trying to make whiskey soap, but no.

Fire in the Hole explosively awesome campfire soap: Inspired by friends, whiskey, explosions, and good times

The first attempt at making Fire in the Hole soap came on a weekend in May. I know this very specifically, because I wasn't camping that weekend, and it was our annual May Trip.

It smells like leather, gunpowder, sandalwood, and sagebrush, which is pretty much what we imagine any great Western movie smells like.

New Product Developments: On the horizon of the Outlaw landscape

One of the fun parts of our jobs is inventing. But due to the nature of our business (outlined at the bottom of this post), we can't do a whole lot of it. Spring, though, is time for us to order a whole messa new supplies and start inventing with great fervor, since whatever we invent in the Spring, we're stuck with for the rest of the year. And if we don't invent something in the Spring, we don't get to start inventing it at any other time, since it's too close to Christmas (yes, really). Here are some exciting products that we're working on this Spring! Look for these in April and May!
