We invite you to join us for a first taste of our much anticipated French Oak Texas Single Malt on Friday, July 26th.
We invite you to join us for a first taste of our much anticipated French Oak Texas Single Malt on Friday, July 26th.We have always use a small portion of French Oak casks as a component of our "1" Texas Single Malt. FR.OAK is an expression that serves as a partial deconstruction to highlight the expressive and unique character that the French Oak bestows on the whisky. Always full in body, darker in color, loaded with notes of baked goods and spices with more tannin than American Oak, FR.OAK is a building block that deserves to stand on its own.
At the first taste event, enjoy a sampling of Fr.Oak, a complimentary specialty cocktail, appetizers, live music, and a chance to hear from one of our distillers about this expression. All attendees will have the opportunity to skip Saturday's line and purchase a bottle of Fr.Oak during the event. This bottle will retail for $79.99; see Tasting Notes below.
Must be 21 to attend. Please note: all guests are limited to (2) two total bottle purchases per person per 30 days. Must show valid ID upon purchase.Must be present to purchase bottle(s). No bottle(s) will be held for ticket holders who do not attend.
