Maverick Whiskey is releasing its limited-edition Samuel Maverick Barrel Proof Straight Bourbon Whiskey, a Certified Texas Whiskey produced in the Lone Star State.
The Samuel Maverick Barrel Proof Straight Bourbon Whiskey is pot-distilled and bottled at barrel proof. The Samuel Maverick Barrel Proof Straight Bourbon Whiskey is now available at the Maverick Whiskey distillery and select retailers in Texas.
“We founded Maverick Whiskey in 2017 as a destination distillery in the heart of San Antonio adjacent to the Alamo as a way to celebrate our family and Texas heritage,” says Dr. Kenneth Maverick, founder of Maverick Whiskey. “Our distillery, housed in the restored Historic Lockwood Bank Building, carries on the spirit of Samuel Maverick with the potent flavors of our new Barrel Proof Straight Bourbon. Any maverick will appreciate its gusto.”
The Samuel Maverick Barrel Proof Straight Bourbon Whiskey is distilled from a mash of 72% Texas-grown corn, 18% rye, and 10% malted barley. It is aged a minimum of two years in new charred White Oak barrels. The Texas Barrel Proof Straight Bourbon Whiskey is non-chill filtered and hand-bottled at barrel proof (57% alcohol by volume / 114 proof) ensuring the true, bold flavor of this Texas bourbon.
“To produce our Samuel Maverick Barrel Proof Straight Bourbon Whiskey, we expertly select the best barrels of Certified Texas Whiskey that are brought in from a Texas distillery,” says head distiller Kevin Graham. “Once aged, we expertly blend the right barrels to bring out the sweet caramel flavors balanced with just the right pop of spice.”
Samuel Maverick Barrel Proof Straight Bourbon Whiskey Tasting Notes
- The charred oak gives the nose a deep earthiness with notes of vanilla and caramel. The palate is delightfully smooth with notes of sweet caramel, cola, and spices. The finish, while silky, has the peppery bite of rye and a touch of mint. Enjoy the best served neat or with one large ice cube in a Glencairn.
Samuel Maverick Barrel Proof Straight Bourbon Whiskey and Samuel Maverick Texas Dry Gin are available at the distillery in San Antonio, Texas. Both are distributed by Republic National Distributing Company in Texas and are available in select independent and chain retail stores.
