Business Spotlight: Burlock & Barrel Distillery

May 27, 2020

 | 

I had the absolute pleasure of finding out, through a friend, about the new distillery in Downtown Jacksonville called “Burlock & Barrel”. Opening their doors in December 2019 and located in the Brooklyn area of downtown Jacksonville (417 Magnolia Street Jacksonville, FL 32204) owners Ian Haensly & Colin Edwards have been distilling three unique & all hand-crafted spirits.

 

The history of their name runs deep with Jacksonville bootlegging, but let’s just say they are “the real McCoy”! Their three trademark spirits are B&B Reserve, Whisper “2019 Double Gold Medal Winner ~ John Barleycorn Awards” & Whim Brand. The Whim Brand has two handcrafter flavors, Honey & Jalapeño Honey, both infused with natural local honey.  All different in their own respect, Burlock & Barrel delivers a spirit for everyone entirely in house.

 

        

 

Since opening in December and the COIVD-19 Pandemic happening shortly after, Ian & Colin had to adjust their business plan and started to produce hand sanitizer in their distillery as well. Using the FDA provided guidelines, Ian & Colin have been providing local businesses & residents with hand sanitizer while there is a shortage in other stores.

Keep your home safe by reinforcing these home entry points

April 28, 2020

 | 

Thanks to video doorbell systems, we are now paying more attention to home security. We’ve all seen the videos online of would-be burglars and scammers caught by high-tech front porch security systems.

 

The only problem? These camera systems don’t actually prevent criminals from accessing your home. Even in gated neighborhoods and master-planned communities throughout Jacksonville and St. Augustine, home break-ins can and do happen—anywhere.

 

 

In addition to installing a home security system to alert the authorities of suspicious activity, it is important to deter criminals from even gaining access in the first place.

 

Here are a few ways you can increase protection at your home’s main entry points.

 

Garage door

The garage door is one of the most vulnerable entry points in a home! An amateur burglar can easily open it by drilling a hole in the door (or breaking a glass window, if applicable) and using a long hook tool to pull the emergency release wire. Once the wire has been pulled, the door disengages and can be opened manually in just seconds. This goes for heavy-duty garage doors as well; the spring system works to counter the door’s weight.

Big surprise for Heritage Landing girl shows community togetherness despite COVID-19

April 14, 2020

 | 

Saturday, April 4, was a very important day for Sloane Stadt for two reasons. She was home for the first time after an intense, month-long round of chemotherapy, and she was turning four years old.

 

Sloane was diagnosed with Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) on February 28. She entered the hospital on March 2 to begin treatment and returned home last weekend for a brief respite before returning to the hospital.

 

While Sloane was unable to celebrate with a party at home due to COVID-19, the community stepped in to help her celebrate her big day. A community car parade was organized in Heritage Landing where she lives with her family.

 

The procession included nearly 60 vehicles as well as vehicles from St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office and St. Johns County Fire Rescue. Many cars were decorated with balloons and signs. Lots of cars were honking, waving and dropping off birthday gifts for Sloane.
