A classic Bourbon mash bill from Kentucky bottled at an impressive 47.5% ABV.
Daniel Barnes founded Treaty Oaks Distilling in 2006 in Austin, Texas. He quickly made an impact in the local bar scene and expanded rapidly, delivering a range of Bourbons, Whiskies, and Waterloo Gin. In 2016 they expanded to a new facility on a 28-acre ranch in the small town of Dripping Springs, Texas — about ten miles west of Austin — with new, larger stills and storage rickhouse. In 2018 they became a part of Mahalo Spirits (Angel’s Envy) and RSVP Ventures’ expanding Spirits portfolio.
Treaty Oak Red Handed Bourbon is a sourced Spirit from the famous Heaven Hill Distillery in Bardstown, Kentucky, on the same stills used to make Evan Williams, Elijah Craig, Old Fitzgerald, and dozens of other premium Spirits using their classic Bourbon mash bill of 78% corn, 12% rye, and 10% barley. So, this Straight Bourbon comes with a good pedigree. It’s officially aged only two years. But it is also delivered at a healthy 47.5% ABV and comes with a handful of Gold and Silver Medals that testify to the quality of the dram.
Treaty Oak is named after a four hundred year-old tree in Austin. Stephen Fuller Austin was known as “The Father of Texas” and served as the first Secretary of State when Texas was an independent country. He signed the treaty establishing the official boundaries of Texas under that tree.
