Where did the name Ranger Creek come from?
Ranger Creek is actually a small creek here in San Antonio. We knew we wanted to honor the state of Texas in the name of our company since we owe a lot to her, and Ranger Creek turned out to be a perfect fit. The little creek embodies the spirit of what we’re trying to do. It’s not the biggest creek around, but it has a charm and significance that is hard to ignore. There’s no doubt that it was extremely important to the small group of frontier settlers that ventured out that far. You can imagine that some of them might have even been doing a little distillation on the banks of Ranger Creek. Perhaps Coffee Jack Hays and his Texas Rangers even provided protection from Comanche attacks to the settlers in exchange for something to keep their spirits high out on the trail. We don’t know for sure, but images like these are conjured up when looking out over Ranger Creek. When we were talking about what to name our company, that little creek made its presence known, and it just felt right.
Doesn’t bourbon have to be made in Kentucky?
Most bourbon is made in Kentucky, so the state is strongly linked with the spirit. However, it doesn’t have to be made there. Bourbon has to be made in the U.S., but it can be made in any state. Don’t believe us? Check out the federal government’s standards of identity. Kentucky makes some pretty good bourbon, but Texas is starting to give them some competition. Microdistilleries in other states are also entering the ring. It’s getting exciting.
