FOUNDER’S
SELECT

Single Barrel

Our co-founder’s, Leonard Firestone and Troy Robertson, have waited since 2010 when they founded our distillery and the time has finally come to share their single barrel selections. Each co-founder has hand selected their own personal barrel due to it’s history over the years and distinctive profile. We cannot wait to release both of our Founder’s Select Single Barrel picks at Whiskey Ranch on Thursday, January 30th, which will be exclusively available at Whiskey Ranch until they are sold out.

 

We are opening our distillery to the public for free at 12pm on the 30th and will begin selling the bottles at 2pm-7pm. Guests may purchase one of each Founder’s Select bottles and get them signed by Leonard and Troy who will be on-site until 7pm! Additionally, our Tavern and Ranch Store will be open so you can grab a drink and shop, and we will have an engraver at the distillery for even more customization to your bottles!

 

We look forward to having you out, make sure you arrive early to ensure you get one, or both, of the Founder’s Select Single Barrel picks before they’re gone!

LEONARD’S PICK:

Barrel #: 1432

Barreling Date: November 16, 2015

Bottle Proof: 90

Bottle Amount: ~230

Tasting Notes:
Caramel, baked apple, savory, oak, wood spice, maple, brown spice

“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!”

– Leonard Firestone

TROY'S PICK:

Barrel #: 1412

Barreling Date: November 5, 2015

Bottle Proof: 90

Bottle Amount: ~230

Tasting Notes:
Nutty, cream soda, smoke, creamy/rich, fig

“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.”

– Troy Robertson

MASTER DISTILLER’S SELECT

We were excited to release our Master Distiller’s Select Barrel #1353 in December, 2019. Rob Arnold, our Master Distiller, hand selected a unique barrel for its distinctive taste profile of rich caramel, fig and tropical fruits all complimented by cinnamon spice and toasted, sweet oak that results in an incredible flavor. The barrel produced roughly 250 bottles, all of which have been sold! Thank you to everyone who came to Whiskey Ranch to get a bottle of this limited release, we were honored share this with you and thankful for how many of you came to get a bottle!

SINGLE BARREL PROGRAM

Unrepeatable Flavor. Literally.

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!
