Highly Acclaimed Garrison Brothers Cowboy Bourbon™ to be Re-released this summer for First Time Since 2013’s Sold Out Run.
Garrison Brothers Distillery is thrilled to announce the re-release of their critically acclaimed Garrison Brothers Cowboy Bourbon™, coming to select liquor stores and accounts nationwide at the end of the Summer of 2015. Initially released in 2013, and named in Jim Murray’s Whiskey Bible as the Micro Whiskey of the Year scoring a remarkable 96 points, Garrison Brothers Cowboy Bourbon™ sold out instantly. Now for 2015, Garrison Brothers is raising the bar — not only in regard to the quality of Garrison Brothers Cowboy Bourbon™ but also in the amount produced — making 5,200 bottles available to consumers this year.
Just like the little distillery’s flagship bourbon, Garrison Brothers Cowboy Bourbon™ is made from organic Panhandle corn, soft red winter wheat grown at the distillery, two-row malted barley and ultra-pure Hill Country rainwater. It has been aged in North American White Oak barrels for four years, making it the oldest bourbon ever produced in Texas, and twice as old as the 2013 release of Garrison Brothers Cowboy Bourbon™. Whereas the 2013 release was packaged in small 375ml bottles, the new release is bottled in 750ml bottles but priced about the same as the original release. This bourbon is barrel proof, unfiltered and uncut, weighing in at 135 proof or 67.5% ABV. As such, it is not meant for the faint of heart, for making cocktails or for heavy drinking. It is to be sipped and savored slowly in moderation.
Garrison Brothers Cowboy Bourbon™ is packaged in a rugged custom white American oak box, lined with deerskin, and as always with Garrison Brothers; each bottle is hand-numbered and signed by master distiller Donnis Todd with Dan Garrison’s signature on the back of the box. Texans will get first dibs on the Cowboy because according to Garrison, “around here, you dance with the one who brung ya”. In other states where Garrison Brothers is sold, consumers should ask their local liquor store to get them a bottle. Most liquor stores that already carry Garrison Brothers Texas Straight Bourbon Whiskey have started customer wait lists already. Those who own or manage a bar, restaurant or hotel should contact their wholesaler for pricing and availability.
If the bourbon isn’t stolen on its way, which seems to happen frequently in Kentucky, Garrison Brothers Distillery expects it to arrive to distributor’s warehouses in August and ride out to stores and accounts throughout the month. According to Dan Garrison, “the color alone makes this bourbon remarkable, but the taste and finish is the stuff of legends.”
