The success of this project has set the stage for future unique blends that will become the hallmark of the Texas Whiskey Festival.

The Texas Whiskey Festival today announced the completion of a historical, first-time-ever project where four Texas craft whiskey distillers have worked together to create a new and unique whiskey. This limited quantity special blend is being released under a special series called the Texas Whiskey Festival Blend, released under the Crowded Barrel Alliance Series.

The first distillery collaboration blend in the history of Texas Whiskey involves Balcones Distilling in Waco; Ironroot Republic in Denison; Andalusia Whiskey Co in Blanco; and Crowded Barrel Whiskey Co in Austin. Each distillery collaborated in more than a dozen initial blends – which were tasted, tasted, and tasted some more – leading to a round of the final-4 blends, and eventually to the final blend.

After resting and allowing the whiskeys to “marry” together, 3 different proof versions were created and sent to each distillery. From there, the blend was proofed-down over time and allowed to rest prior to bottling. The bottling process totaled just 1,200 – 375ml bottles. It will be available on Friday, April 19th, exclusively through the Crowded Barrel Website and distillery.

“Everyone at the Texas Whiskey Festival is proud to participate in this historic project because it shows the growth and camaraderie of our industry,” said Texas Whiskey Festival Producer Jake Clements. “Even though this limited, first-time batch will sell out immediately – the success of the project has set the stage for future unique blends that will become the hallmark of the Texas Whiskey Festival.”

The Texas Whiskey Festival takes place April 19th, at the Star Hill Ranch near Bee Cave Texas. The event provides a casual and informative opportunity for whiskey enthusiasts to meet Texas’ master blenders and distillers, while enjoying an evening of food, entertainment and cigar pairings designed to complement the craft whiskey brands showcased at the event.
