Bourbon By Allyson Nichols / January 2, 2021 Devils River Distillery out of Texas recently released a new single barrel bourbon whiskey that was timed to the holiday shopping season that just passed. Devils River Single Barrel Straight Bourbon Whiskey, according to those behind it, is a “grain-to-glass” 100% Texas straight bourbon individually bottled at barrel proof from a hand-selected combination of Texas-grown grains, allowing each bottle to have its own distinct flavor. The whiskey is aged for two years in a dark #4 charred oak barrel.

The drink is aged in the hot heat of Texas, allowing an acceleration of the aging cycle by extracting more of the complex flavors from the wood staves of the barrel. The Texas climate can ultimately double the aging time of a whiskey compared to other milder or fluctuating temperature climates. “This is an expression we have been working on for many years,” Co-founder and President of Devils River Whiskey Mike Cameron said in a prepared statement. “The unique characteristics and complex flavor profile offers a sinfully smooth experience for everyone, from the casual drinker to the bourbon connoisseur.” Whiskey drinkers can visit the Devils River Whiskey website to possibly find the Devils River Single Barrel Straight Bourbon Whiskey through local retailers in the following 29 states where they are distributed: TX, CA, LA, OK, AR, CO, NE, KS, MO, WI, IL, IN, KY, TN, GA, SC, FL, MD, ME, NJ, RI, MA, NY, CT, AL, NC, PA, DC, and NV.
