Our Small Caliber Series is am award-winning line of creative, limited edition whiskeys aged in small barrels. We put these whiskeys in small bottles to represent the small barrels in which they have been matured. The small barrels accelerate the maturation process by increasing the wood to liquid ratio in the barrel. This imparts unique, interesting flavors and allows us to experiment with new products. In the spirit of being truly craft, we will use local ingredients and innovative ideas to release a new Small Caliber Series product each year. Each bottle will be hand labeled with the batch number, bottle number, season, and maturation time.
Texas Straight Bourbon Whiskey
We’re maturing bourbon in traditional big barrels. This bourbon will eventually be our flagship product, but it takes years to fully mature. As a matter of fact, in order to be called Straight Bourbon, a bourbon must be aged for a minimum of two years. We’re one of the first distilleries to make bourbon in Texas (legally, anyway), so we’re not sure exactly how long it will take the big barrels to mature. But we’ll figure it out and be sure to let you know when it’s ready! We anticipate release in 2014, but we can’t rush Mother Nature. In the meantime, we have some delicious Small Caliber Series whiskey to enjoy.
Craft Beer Distilled into Whiskey
We started as guys who drank beer and whiskey. Then we started making them, and we discovered the fascinating relationship between the two. This relationship explained why we enjoyed both, and we built our business around educating other beer and whiskey drinkers about it. Here it is. Whiskey is just distilled beer. It’s a simple statement that is quite profound. Our Belgian White Whiskey does a pretty nice job helping you unravel it.
Uniquely Texan and Grain to Glass
All of our products are proudly handcrafted in San Antonio from grain to glass in a labor intensive, manual process that takes love, time, and dedication. Some competitors take short cuts and buy their spirits from someone else. We do it like true Texans should.
