FIRESTONE & ROBERTSON DISTILLING CO. LAUNCHES THE TX EXPERIMENTAL SERIES
Makers of TX Whiskey and TX Bourbon Release TX Experimental Rye, First in Series
WHO: Firestone & Robertson Distilling Co.
The makers of TX Whiskey and TX Bourbon today announced the launch of The TX Experimental Series, a new line of experimental products to rival anything TX has created before, starting with the launch of TX Experimental Rye.
Each batch of TX Experimental Rye carries a very unique grain bill for rye whiskey at 100% rye based; 85% rye and 15% malted rye. The minimum requirement for rye whiskey is usually 51% rye. With a flavor profile of cinnamon, clove, sweet spice, fruity and floral, chocolate and caramel, the team at TX believes in the pursuit of terroir and how an ingredient’s location can impact the flavors of the product.
“Our TX Experimental Series is dedicated to the exploration of new and forgotten flavors in whiskey. The first release is an uncut, unfiltered, barrel proof, 126.1 proof Texas Straight Rye Whiskey made from 100% rye,” says Master Distiller Rob Arnold. “Most rye whiskeys are produced with ample corn and/or a small amount of barley malt. By sticking to a 100% rye recipe, we are able to let the sweet and spicy rye flavors shine through at their fullest.”
Roughly 1000 – 1500 bottles of TX Experimental Rye will be available to purchase for $49.99 at Whiskey Ranch through their click & collect program. The limited run rye whiskey will only be available in 375ml bottles, limit two per customer.
TX Experimental Rye is available starting July 27, 2020
