Texas-based Garrison Brothers Distillery announced the release date for Guadalupe, the newest limited expression in the brand’s portfolio, in its second year of release.
Named after one of the Lone Star State’s most beautiful rivers, Guadalupe Texas Straight Bourbon Whiskey is port-cask finished bourbon that is bottled at 107 proof.
The story of Guadalupe began in 2015 when Garrison Brothers teamed up with one of Texas’ oldest and most beloved winemakers, Llano Estacado. After previously using the winery’s decades-old port casks to age 4-year-old bourbon and craft Garrison Brothers’ 2019 limited Texas straight bourbon whiskey Estacado, Todd began sourcing in Portugal for a more expansive port cask bourbon project, that which would become Guadalupe.
Of the new release, Todd Shares, “Such a beautiful bold bourbon with an amazingly long fruit-forward finish.”
“Guadalupe is best enjoyed anyway you like it. I can’t think of a better way to drink my dessert. And, I’ll pair that delicious nectar with my favorite chocolate, if I’m looking for a really good time.”Adds Dan Garrison.
Guadalupe is a sensuous, creamy liquid. Flavor notes include berry fruit, ripe plums, strawberry butter on flaky morning biscuits, chocolate and cinnamon, and lavender honey. Guadalupe is the perfect bourbon for connoisseurs with sophisticated palates and is considered a dessert bourbon. It is best enjoyed paired with one’s favorite chocolate or decadent sweet.
Garrison Brothers 2022 Guadalupe Texas Straight Bourbon Whiskey will be available for purchase at fine liquor and spirits retailers across the nation and will also be served at select restaurants and bars beginning in August 2022.
