The makers of TX Blended Whiskey and TX Straight Bourbon recently announced the launch of TX Whiskey Canned Cocktails — the brand’s first ready-to-drink canned cocktail.
These cocktails are exclusively available in Texas and are mixed with what’s described as TX Blended Whiskey’s bold taste, sweet aroma and smooth finish and come in three flavors.
“We wanted to create a versatile product that allows TX Whiskey fans to savor our cocktails without the hassle of mixing a drink,” said TX Whiskey Director of Marketing, Steve Gordon, in a prepared statement. “As our first ready-to-drink cocktails exclusively available in Texas, each TX Whiskey Canned Cocktail is inspired by iconic flavors enjoyed by generations of Texans.”
The TX Whiskey & Cola, according to the brand, is made with blended whiskey, natural cola flavor and caramel color and features notes of cinnamon, clove and nutmeg spices with hints of sweet custard and rich vanilla on the nose. The cocktail blends natural flavors of cola spices and sweet caramel toffee on the palate and a bourbon vanilla finish.
The TX Whiskey Ranch Water is made with blended whiskey, natural lime flavor and carbonation. It features natural flavor notes of tart lime, vanilla bean, subtle nutmeg and pear drops on the nose, and blends natural flavor hints of vibrant lime zest, crisp citrus notes and French vanilla flavor on the palate.
The TX Whiskey & Sweet Tea is made with Blended Whiskey, Natural Tea Flavors and Caramel Color. It features notes of earthy black tea, citrusy lemon, soft vanilla, and subtle Bartlett pear on the nose. It blends natural flavors of sweet orange, honey, toffee, delicate bergamot and black tea leaves on the palate with a creamy vanilla finish.
“Our award-winning TX Blended Whiskey is the star of each TX Whiskey Canned Cocktail featuring notes of vanilla bean and pear that’s slightly sweet on the nose and a long, smooth finish,” said TX Master Blender, Ale Ochoa. “The Whiskey & Cola, Whiskey Ranch Water, and Whiskey & Sweet Tea cocktail flavors beautifully complement our whiskey on the palate.”
Four packs of TX whiskey’s canned cocktails are available to purchase for a SRP of $12.99 at Texas retailers.
