Maverick Distilling is releasing its limited-edition Samuel Maverick Private Reserve Straight Bourbon Whiskey, a grain-to-glass whiskey produced completely in-house. Private Reserve is distilled in small batches using select Texas-grown corn, rye, and barley and aged on-site in the vaults below the distillery in the historic Lockwood National Bank building located steps from the Alamo. Just seven barrels of the four-year-old reserve bourbon were bottled for this small-batch limited release of Samuel Maverick Private Reserve.

“We set out to make a statement with our new Samuel Maverick Private Reserve Bourbon that the utmost quality and craftsmanship can be achieved with grain-to-glass whiskey made in Texas,” says Dr. Kenneth Maverick, founder of Maverick Distilling. “With our head distiller, we personally selected the very best 30-gallon barrels for Samuel Maverick Private Reserve Bourbon. Its name is a nod to our family heritage, as well as the location on which it was made—distilled on the land that was once Samuel Maverick’s original homestead in the 1800s. With every element stemming from the Lone Star State, we have crafted and bottled a true taste of Texas.”

Samuel Maverick Private Reserve Straight Bourbon Whiskey

This premium hand-crafted straight bourbon is a grain-to-glass whiskey that Maverick Distilling has produced fully in-house. Glowing rich amber in color, Samuel Maverick Private Reserve Straight Bourbon Whiskey boasts deep aromas of clover-scented honey, Lockhart barbecue, and roasted Hill Country pecans.

It’s a full-bodied bourbon with a velvety texture and front-forward warm vanilla and subdued caramel flavors from Texas sweet corn and Edwards Aquifer water which grab the palate with each sip. Maverick Malthouse Rye brings out balanced bitter-sweet chocolate flavors that melt into subtle clove and nutmeg of North Texas malted barley.

Samuel Maverick Private Reserve is a straight bourbon to be savored with a rich honey and pepper finish that lingers with a wisp of smoke from the barrels, or maybe from the spirits of the Alamo. Hand-bottled at 90-proof, it is a smooth and approachable whiskey that is easy to enjoy in cocktails, on ice, and poured neat.
