My name is Micah Sierp and I have been involved in the leather crafting trade for over 20 years. Whether watching my father work when I wasn't old enough to hold a round knife or making Thoroughbred race halters while attending the University of Kentucky; I have done it all. In 2007 I designed our flagship, a 13.5oz Libbey rocks glass with an English Bridle leather sleeve, and convinced Woodford Reserve to buy a dozen with the old Labrot & Graham logo imprinted in copper foil. They were a hit! So, in 2011 I created BourbonWare to combine my leather crafting background with my love of fine bourbon. Today we have retailers all over Kentucky and ship our products world wide.

Please remember to enjoy our products responsibly!

A Note On Quality:

BourbonWare features vegetable tanned English bridle leather from Wickett & Craig tannery in Pennsylvania and Libbey glassware for many of our most popular products. Solid brass, Stainless steel, Bonded nylon thread and Crystal are also used for a variety of items. We use the best materials and traditional construction techniques. I personally stand behind our product - Since 2007 one glass has been sent in for service! And I am proud to say there was not anything wrong with the leather; the glass had accidentally been broken. After conditioning the leather and replacing the glass it was ready for another round!

Remember - Anything else is just a glass!
