This four-year aged Bourbon contains some truly Texan ingredients: #2 Yellow Dent Texas corn, Texas Soft Red winter wheat, and Texas water. Each bottle is even topped with a random piece of fur or leather from nearby bootmakers with whom the distillery works closely.  Most unique, however, would be the proprietary yeast strain that was harvested from a friend’s Texas pecan tree.

The yeast was harvested not from the actual tree, but from one lone pecan from said tree after harvesting over 100 samples of wild yeast, isolating all strains and testing them in small “micro-fermentations,” and then studying each for unique effectiveness and character. The chosen strain, named “Brazos” after the ranch on which the tree grows, exhibits character described by the distillery as a unique blend of “dried fruit,” “sweet spice,” and “floral” notes.

The distillery also claims that the intense Texas temperature fluctuation allows for a rapid aging, given the contrast of hot days and cool nights which allow the whiskey to seep in and out of the wood’s grain as it expands and contracts daily. TX Straight Bourbon was aged just over four years and released for the first time in December of 2016.
