Lovers of Texas whiskey now have one more sauce to sample.

San Antonio's Maverick Whiskey has rolled out its limited-edition Samuel Maverick Barrel Proof Straight Bourbon Whiskey. Distilled from a mash of Texas-grown corn, rye and malted barley, the 57% ABV spirit boasts notes of sweet caramel, cola and spices but finishes with the peppery bite of rye.

The whiskey is also pot-distilled and bottled at barrel proof from grain to glass in Texas, allowing it to boast the Certified Texas Whiskey shield.

The new barrel-proof whiskey is available directly from the distillery or from local retailers including Alamo City Liquor, Spec's Wines, Spirits & Foods, Total Wine & More and Twin Liquors.

Downtown's Maverick is a whiskey distillery, restaurant and event center named for Sam and Mary Ann Maverick, one of San Antonio's earliest families. The multi-use facility sits on what was originally former San Antonio mayor Samuel Maverick’s homestead, steps from the Alamo.
