Character Goatson
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.

Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
Sure, Kentucky gets all the press when it comes to Bourbon. And with good reason—nearly 95% of it is produced there. But Bourbon can be made anywhere as long as it's within the United States. Just ask states with budding distilleries like Illinois and New York.
Bourbon only needs to be placed in a new oak container for a few seconds to be called Bourbon. Fresh from the still and unaged Bourbon is called a White Dog. Recently, many of the larger distillers have started packaging this harsh, clear grain spirit for sale.
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
