You dump it in, and quick age it by cycling it in the freezer and such. THey recommend aging for about 1 month, so it won't technically be bourbon.
It's fun. We will see how it turns out. They provide a label so you can name it what you want. It's a bit gimmicky, but so what, I wanted to try it.
My only gripe is its pricey, and as such may be a one time experiment. The complete kit is $24.95 for 375ml. I think they should make the kit 750ml to compete with small batch bourbons from the experts.
I'll post a review once its aged.

There are a few DIY options available - some others:
Wasmund's Barrel kit (Single Malt or Rye)
Woodinville Age Your Own
Or just buy a barrel and dump in something to age it a bit longer:
