Texas distillery Devils River has expanded their family of premium whiskeys with the release of Devils River Single Barrel Straight Bourbon Whiskey, a “grain-to-glass” 100% Texas straight bourbon delivering a true, one-of-a-kind taste.
Devils River Whiskey sources only the finest Texas-grown grains to create the mash bill, making every barrel of Devils River Single Barrel Bourbon genuinely one of a kind.
Temperature can play an important role in whiskey distilling, and head distiller Cameron credits the sweltering Texas climate for naturally accelerating the ageing cycle of the process. This can ultimately double the ageing time of a whiskey in Texas compared to other milder or fluctuating temperature climates.
“Up to 75% of the flavour in whiskey comes from the dark #4 charred oak barrel the whiskey is aged in, this gives Devils River Distillery an advantage to their ageing process,” said Cameron. Due to the blazing Texas sun, the whiskey extracts more of the complex flavours from the wood staves of the barrel, allowing its distinctive characteristics to shine through.
“This is an expression we have been working on for many years,” says Mike Cameron, co-founder and president of Devils River Whiskey. “The unique characteristics and complex flavour profile offers a sinfully smooth experience for everyone, from the casual drinker to the bourbon connoisseur.”
