Maverick Distilling Unveils Rodeo Double Barrel Bourbon

Maverick Distilling, TX, has unveiled the new Samuel Maverick Double Barrel Bourbon Rodeo Edition, released in celebration of the annual San Antonio Rodeo

The Samuel Maverick Double Barrel Bourbon Rodeo Edition is made from a mash comprising 72% Texas corn, 18% rye, and 10% malted barley. The bourbon was then aged in new, charred American oak casks, and then finished for 18 months in an ex-Samuel Maverick Private Reserve Bourbon Whiskey barrel. It was bottled at 115 proof (57.5% ABV) for the occasion. 

On the palate, expect creme brûlée, caramel, and cola with a smooth mouthfeel and a rye spice finish. 

Only 107 bottles will be available to purchase at the distillery for $75 per bottle. 

Dr. Kenneth Maverick, co-founder of Maverick Distilling, says that the bourbon is a celebration of San Antonio’s culture: “[t]he Rodeo gives so much to the people of San Antonio with bull riding, concerts, and excellent cuisine. It brings people together from all over Texas to celebrate and share this rich tradition. The Rodeo and western heritage have an important place in the fabric of San Antonio’s history, and we are paying homage to the cowboy and all of the Rodeo volunteers who keep this heritage alive.”

About Maverick Distilling 

Maverick Distilling is a San Antonio-based distillery founded by Kenneth Maverick, a direct descendant of the historic Maverick family. The distillery is situated near the Alamo and serves as a tribute to the Maverick family’s deep Texas roots. 

In addition to whiskey, it also operates a small craft beer operation. Samuel Maverick, an ancestor, used to seal land purchases with a barrel of whiskey – a tradition that inspired the distillery’s establishment.

About The San Antonio Rodeo 

The San Antonio Rodeo, also known as the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo, began in 1950, inspired by a smaller event from the previous year. The first rodeo was held at the newly completed Freeman Coliseum, attracting 5,000 visitors on its inaugural day. 

Over the years, the event evolved and moved to the state-of-the-art AT&T Center in 2003. The rodeo has grown exponentially since its inception, now drawing over 1 million attendees annually.
