Character Goatson
A true Texas-style Straight Bourbon with the sweet and spicy character of the Lone Star State.

Leonard Firestone and Troy Robertson have known each other for years — their kids played together. Troy was ready to start a new venture in Whiskey-making and had scheduled a tour at a small craft shop. When he got there he discovered that his friend Leonard had an appointment the following week. Even two North Texas cowboys couldn’t ignore synchronicity like that. So they launched Firestone & Robertson Distilling together in 2010 — building out an old Prohibition-era warehouse in Fort Worth. They released their first Whiskey in 2012 to raging success. Pernod Ricard couldn’t resist a sip, and acquired the company in 2019 to bring their Spirit to a global audience.

TX Straight Bourbon Whiskey is as Texas as yellow roses and big bright skies. It’s made from all local grains — Texas yellow-dent corn, red winter wheat, and six-row malted barley. The fermentation comes from natural yeast that grows on Texas pecan trees under the watchful eye of head distiller Rob Arnold. The Spirit is aged for four years in new oak and bottled at a very pleasant 45% ABV that took home the 2020 Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition… YeeHaw!

Smartass Corner:
Each bottle of TX Whiskey is branded with a custom, hand-made stopper. They’re made of wood with a disk of hand-tool boot leather in a variety of colors and textures on the top.

"Remember that iconic poster from World War II showing Rosie the Riveter as a patriotic American woman doing her part for the war effort? Well, hundreds of businesses did their part too, and the Bourbon distillers stepped right up with ‘em.

Distilleries all over Kentucky and Tennessee were re-tooled to distill fuel alcohol and ferment penicillin cultures to treat wounded soldiers."
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.
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.
At any given time, there are more barrels of Bourbon in Kentucky than there are people. The population of the Bluegrass State is about 4.4 million. Today there are more than 5 million barrels of Bourbon sitting in the rick-houses of that Old Kentucky Home. That’s nearly 300 bottles of Bourbon per person, or about 60 gallons each.
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.
Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
