The Bourbon Blog

It’s hotter than hell in Texas, and we like it that way. Because while we’re sweatin’ like dogs, our bourbon is getting pushed deeper and deeper into our white oak’s barrel’s pores, soaking up its buttery caramel and vanilla flavors, amber color, and earthy texture. When it does cool down, the bourbon escapes the wood and returns to the inside of the barrel, taking these delicious flavors along with it and transforming the liquid into the Nectar of the Gods. We’ve partnered with Texas Monthly to create your go-to source for recipes, tips, guides, and more. Cheers!
