In celebration of its eight-year milestone sharing whiskey with the world, Ranger Creek has released its first cask strength whiskey. Aged and matured in the Texas heat, Ranger Creek calls the release “a bold and unique expression with Texas terroir.” Cask Strength .36 Straight Bourbon became available on October 15 at local bars, retailers and restaurants with a limited-edition 600 bottles hitting the Texas market, and additional bottles available in New York and through online retailers.
Barrels were carefully selected for this anticipated release by distiller Josh Gardner, who says, “At 127.2 proof, this is Texas bourbon in all its grandeur. With hints of toffee, cinnamon, caramel, and crème brule, this is a big and bold expression straight out of the barrel.”
Each batch follows Ranger Creek’s grain-to-glass philosophy. Texas corn is milled, sour-mashed, fermented, double-distilled, and aged in San Antonio. The warm Texas climate with 120-degree summer rack house days create a unique Texas “terroir”.
In addition, limited signed bottles are available at the San Antonio Distillery at 4834 Whirlwind Dr, San Antonio, Texas.
