Fort Worth’s Firestone & Robertson Distillery releases its first batch of locally made bourbon in time for Christmas gifting

firestone-and-robertson-fw-whiskey-8 firestone-and-robertson-fw-whiskey-14 firestone-and-robertson-fw-whiskey-11Fort Worth’s Firestone and Robertson Distilling Co. has finally released its first batch of locally distilled and barreled TX Straight Bourbon, a four-year-old whiskey made from corn, barley and winter wheat grown in Texas. Twenty-eight barrels were set aside for the bottling; the remainder will continue to age in the F&R warehouse to eventually become 10, 12 and 20 year bourbons.

TX Straight Bourbon’s unique yeast strain was cultivated from a pecan tree nut harvested in Glen Rose, Texas.  F&R owners Troy Robertson (pictured) and Leo Firestone credit that yeast and their new oak barrels with their whiskey ‘s distinct flavors of dried fruits like raisins and plums, baking spices and caramel.

Until now, F&R sold only a blended whiskey based on whiskey produced in part by other distilleries. The new TX Straight Bourbon is available now in limited quantities at local liquor stores and at the Fort Worth distillery for $50.
