Single barrel

Unrepeatable Flavor.


The nature of a single barrel and rickhouse location creates an individual journey for each barrel of TX Straight Bourbon Whiskey.
If you’re unable to come to Whiskey Ranch to get Rob’s Master Distiller’s Select, we have partnered with several retailers to allow them to select their own single barrel from our rickhouse. Each barrel was tasted, evaluated and carefully hand-picked for its unique flavor that you won’t find anywhere else. Each barrel produces roughly 250 bottles of TX Straight Bourbon, so enjoy each one while it lasts!

We have released a handful of specialty single barrel selections which were only available at our distillery, Whiskey Ranch. Each release had a very limited quantity, making these bottles extremely unique and collectible. These selections were all previously released and are now sold out.

Master Distiller’s Select

We released our first round of the Master Distiller’s Select Barrel #1353 in December 2019. Rob Arnold, our Master Distiller, hand selected a unique barrel for its distinctive taste profile, and the barrel produced roughly 250 bottles.

Rich caramel, fig, and tropical fruits, complimented by cinnamon spice and toasted, sweet oak.

Founder’s Select: Leonard’s Pick

Released in January 2020, our co-founder, Leonard Firestone, made his selection because “This particular barrel had an interesting life. We initially stored it in a fairly dark corner of our original distillery because we were running out of space. Once we built Whiskey Ranch, it moved to the third floor of the rickhouse- just about halfway up and in the center of the barn. In its original location, it would not have experienced significant temperature swings. Whereas at Whiskey Ranch, it most certainly did. It spent about half its maturing life in each spot. I think it’s really fantastic!”

Caramel, baked apple, savory, oak, wood spice, maple, brown spice

Founder’s Select: Troy’s Pick

Released in January 2020, our co-founder, Troy Robertson, said that “Like with my children, I don’t have a favorite but each child (and barrel) have their own unique traits and characteristics. I chose barrel #1412 for its complexity and balance, with a creamy/rich taste pairing perfectly with notes of fig. A glass of this single barrel is a welcomed companion on a chilly winter’s night.”


Barrel #: 1412

Barreling Date: November 5, 2015

Bottle Proof: 90

Tasting Notes:

Nutty, cream soda, smoke, creamy/rich, fig
