Bring home a piece of Wine Country and help a Local Calgary company to expand production and hire local employees.
Smoke Barrel started as an idea to combine the best of wine and food. With this in mind we built our first wine barrel smoker on the deck of our cabin and after countless lake side pulled pork sandwiches, we decided it was time to share our experience with the world.
In 2015 we turned this simple idea into reality by making the Smokers in our garage, we sold them online and at trade shows but our sales soon exceeded the space of our garage so we hired loacal shops to manufacture.
In 2016 we conpeted in BBQ competitions, food festivals, and local collaborations to spread the word and build our brand. Over the year we also developed a line of wine barrel wood chips and stainless steal BBQ smoker box to reduce the barrier to entry for smoked food and distribute a consumable product that can be used in our smokers.
We have big plans for 2017 that include 7 trade shows and markets across Western Canada and plenty of local collaboration. We are then hoping to approach big box retailers in late 2017 to have our products in stores for spring of 2018 but we need your help!
We need to order a truck load of barrels and hire local Calgary Tradesman to join our team and manufacture our product. Yoour support will help us to achieve this and share a little piece of wine country with everyone.
All of our rewards are made from wine barrels aged between 3 and 5 years from select vineyards in the Okanagan and Napa Valley. The barrels are brought to Calgary and then manufactured into one of a kind products, each one unique in its wood grain, grape variety, and colour.
We are looking for support through the purchase of rewards, connections with retailers, online support and investment.
