A solid, high-corn Bourbon in the memory of a cultural icon.

Southfork Bottling Company was formed in 2013 by Andy Harmon and his partners to bring a singular dream to market. You might recognize “Southfork” as the name of the family ranch in the night-time soap opera “Dallas” — starring the late, great Larry Hagman as J. R. Ewing. Good ‘ol J. R. was the prototypical bad-boy of TV, swindling and seducing his way across the Lone Star State with a style and panache all his own. But he always had a glass of fine Bourbon in his hand. This was their inspiration.

J.R. Ewing Private Reserve Bourbon might be based on a TV show, but the Bourbon is a real, straight-shooting deal. The mash bill consists of 81% corn, 13% rye, and 6% malted barley — yielding a sweeter dram. And it’s aged a minimum of four years. As J. R. himself once said, “Anything worth having is worth going for… all the way.” This just may be the perfect pour after you close your next deal or need a special elixir to warm-up the ladies.
