The same Devil’s River Texas Bourbon with the volume turned up high.
Devil’s River Whiskey launched their first product — a 90-proof Bourbon — in 2017 using sourced Spirits. President and co-founder Mike Cameron has been driving this upstart Texas-based Spirits company toward nationwide distribution and the opening of their own San Antonio distillery in Q4 of 2019. And they have managed to win a few awards along the way. If the Spirits industry had a “Who to Watch” list, these guys would be on it.
Devil’s River had a huge hit on their hands with the release of their first product — Devil’s River Texas Bourbon. Bottled at 45% ABV, it’s no slouch. So, how do you follow that up?
Devils River Barrel Strength Texas Bourbon Whiskey is the same award-winning Texas Bourbon as their original. The mach bill is the same with 75% corn, 21% rye, and 4% barley. It is aged in the same barrels in the same storage rickhouses. The difference is that this dram is bottled at nearly full cask strength — 58.5% ABV. So, if you’re looking for more of what the Devil has to offer, pull up a glass. And even the Devil will forgive you if you drop a single ice cube in to open up the palate.
Devil’s River Whiskey takes its name from a limestone spring-fed river system that empties into a reservoir on the Rio Grande about 200 miles west of San Antonio where it gets its water.
