TX Whiskey, made by Firestone & Robertson Distilling out of Texas, recently announced the debut of its first ever flavored whiskey, taking the form of a coffee whiskey expression.
The new TX Blended Whiskey – Texas Flavor Series Limited Edition with Avoca Coffee, according to those behind it, marks the brand’s first flavored whiskey in a brand-new flavor series lineup. Done in collaboration with Avoca Coffee Roasters, the Fort Worth-based coffee company, it is 70 proof bottling that is said to bring “notes of coffee, dark roasted fruit, slight molasses and cherries to the nose,” also offering “a coffee, brown sugar and chocolate taste, roasted and rich with a touch of sweetness.”
“We previously partnered with Avoca Coffee Roasters to develop a whiskey and bourbon infused coffee, so it only made sense to create a coffee whiskey,” said TX Whiskey’s Master Blender and Whiskey Scientist, Ale Ochoa, in a prepared statement. “Beginning the process back in 2020, we went through different varieties and Avoca roasts to create the perfect TX expression.
“We all agreed this would be a favorite for the holidays.”
Only 1500 bottles of TX Blended Whiskey – Texas Flavor Series Limited Edition with Avoca Coffee will be available for purchase for $39.99 at Whiskey Ranch, the brand’s home location in Texas. It is a limited release available in 375ml bottles.
