    Nothing planned at the moment. Too many other projects at present to even consider it, including the stainless razor, more scents in the liquid body soaps, candles, essential oils and diffusers, and a new Stirling branded coffee company that we've been working towards for over a year now. :sport026:

    I'm too short on time and money to do anything else. :)

    Thank you for getting them to carry the shampoo. I love Leon at Pasteur. I really hope I have the chance to visit him soon.

    Speaking of coffee, are you ever going to bring back ice coffee SS? I am a relatively new customer, but I have seen it on the web and one of the other 30DC member regrets on not getting it.

    The Barbershop turned out way lighter than it was supposed to be, so we donated everything we had left of it (about 1600 bottles) to a drug rehabilitation center in Hot Springs, Arkansas that helped my brother get clean (and he now manages),

    Good nominees. I still use my original Kong from 2015, and I've got a bottle of Gentleman aftershave with light menthol that I've now refilled four times. I use it more than any other aftershave I own.

    We likely will at some point, but it won't be before 2020. I have been getting requests to bring it back, but not enough to meet the threshold yet.

    As a fellow Arkie (although I'm a transplant) I have to say a) that you make great products, b) it's great for you to support those in need, and lastly c) I'm curious as to your potential coffee roaster....

    Where are you at, if you don't mind me asking?

    As for the coffee, we just got the go ahead from the state today to proceed. We'd been holding off while the state worked out a tax incentive package for us for starting the business in rural area that's seen quite a bit of job losses over the past two decades. It's full steam ahead now and we hope to have the building restoration done within 6 months and start putting free coffee samples in with Stirling Soap orders shortly thereafter.

    I'm in Fayetteville but my work takes me all over the state.
    Great to hear you'll be creating jobs....many places desperately need them....if you'll be giving tours I'll have to stop by in the future...

    Rod @ezlovan was just here, let's see.
    Rod, do you ship internationally? What would be the cost of shipping, if so?

    Do you have distributors outside continental US?

    If recall you are in UK, correct?
    I'm pretty sure there is no direct ship of products like aftershave that contain alcohol.
