Private Reserve Straight Bourbon ($75)

Samuel Maverick Private Reserve Straight Bourbon Whiskey is a grain-to-glass whiskey produced completely in-house using select Texas-grown corn, rye, and barley and aged on-site in the vaults below the distillery located in the historic Lockwood National Bank building steps from the Alamo. Just seven barrels of the four-year-old reserve bourbon were bottled for this small-batch limited release. This premium hand-crafted straight bourbon is the first by Maverick Whiskey Distillery that is produced fully in-house. Glowing rich amber in color, Samuel Maverick Private Reserve Straight Bourbon Whiskey boasts deep aromas of clover-scented honey, Lockhart barbecue, and roasted Hill Country pecans. It’s a full-bodied bourbon with velvety texture and front-forward warm vanilla and subdued caramel flavors from Texas sweet corn and Edwards Aquifer water which grab the palate with each sip. Maverick Malthouse Rye brings out a balanced bitter-sweet chocolate flavors that melt into subtle clove and nutmeg of North Texas malted barley. Samuel Maverick Private Reserve is a straight bourbon to be savored with a rich honey and pepper finish which lingers with a wisp of smoke from the barrels, or maybe from the spirits of the Alamo.

Straight Bourbon Whiskey ($50)

Our Texas Straight Bourbon Whiskey is distilled from a mash of Texas-grown Corn and Rye. Aged a minimum of 2 years in new Charred White Oak Barrels, this Bourbon is proofed to 88 (44% alcohol by volume) using Reverse Osmosis filtered water so that it sips nicely neat yet holds up on-the-rocks or in your favorite Whiskey cocktail. Our Bourbon is non-chill filtered ensuring the true bold flavor of this Texas Whiskey.

The nose is very sweet with notes of Crème Brûlée, caramel, and stone fruit. Charred oak is prevalent as well. The palate is delightfully smooth with notes of sweet black tea, cola, and cinnamon. The finish, while silky, has the peppery bite of Rye and a touch of menthol. Great served neat in a Glencairn or in a nice Old Fashioned complete with Luxardo Cherry.

Texas Dry Gin ($45)

A traditional dry gin with a Texas twist, made using locally grown rosemary, pecans, bay laurel, Mexican mint marigold, and fresh Valley grapefruit zest, along with traditional gin botanicals like common juniper berries and coriander. The nose is deep and complex with notes of resinous juniper, honeysuckle, lavender, lemongrass, and baking spice. The palate is silky smooth with rosemary and juniper up front followed by citrus rind and a pleasant piquancy. The finish is long with notes of menthol and peppercorn. A perfect martini gin.

1824 Agave Blanco ($40)

A floral and fruit forward agave spirit distilled from 100% Blue Agave nectar. Agave Blanco is a less traditional take on tequila resulting in a spirit that is more drinkable and accessible to non-tequila drinkers. We call it Agave Spirit because to be called Tequila, by law, it must be distilled in Jalisco, Mexico and we distill ours right here at 115 Broadway.

A nose of dry white wine, apple blossom, and white pepper. The palate is reminiscent of green fruit, honeysuckle

Vodka ($40)

Our Vodka is distilled 17 times from our mash of Texas-grown Hard Red Winter Wheat. We proof our vodka to 80 (40% Alc. by Vol.) using reverse osmosis filtered water and run charcoal filtration for smoothness and clarity.

The nose is crisp with a hint of sweetness. The palate is wonderfully smooth and the sweetness from the nose carries through with notes of vanilla and citrus. The vodka finishes clean and coats the palate nicely with lingering notes of wintergreen. Drinks beautifully neat or on the rocks with a twist of lemon.

White Rum ($40)

Samuel Maverick White Rum is made from imported Columbian Panela, a raw sugar created from boiling down and evaporating cane juice. We column distill our rum and charcoal filter for a smooth and round mouthfeel while retaining the original character of the Panela sugar. Perfect in a Daquiri or Mojito.

The nose is bright and sweet with notes of honey, brown sugar, and citrus peel. On the palate sweetness prevails with the Panela’s flavor prominent along with orange zest and vanilla. The finish is smooth. Spearmint lingers nicely with a hint of more brown sugar.

Light Whiskey ($40)

The vodka drinker’s whiskey. Distilled from Texas grown hard red winter wheat and aged 1 day in used oak, the nose is nice and clean with notes of citrus, maple syrup, and semisweet chocolate. The palate is fairly neutral with faint notes of fresh wheat bread, stone fruit, and light caramel just peeking through. The finish is perfectly smooth with notes of fresh mint and honey that linger long after the dram is done.

Reposado ($75)

Our 100% Blue Agave Blanco aged in used oak for a minimum of 6 months. Samuel Maverick Reposado is a unique spirit with a nose of rosewater, pink peppercorn, agave nectar, and oak. Wonderfully smooth with a pallet of cola, citrus, and baking spice. Try it in an Old Fashioned!

Straight Rye Whiskey ($75)

Our Straight Rye Whiskey is a true Texas Rye, distilled from Texas-grown Wren’s Abruzzi Rye, Yellow Corn, and malted Barley. Our Rye has a nose of banana pudding, charred oak, clove and bruléed sugar. The pallet is silky with notes of biscut, cardamon, and baking spice. The finish is herbal with cool menthol lingering on the tongue, encouraging another sip. Try it in a Manhattan!

Aged a minimum of 2 years in new Charred White Oak Barrels, this Whiskey is proofed to 88 (44% alcohol by volume)

T he legend goes, when Sam Maverick was selected by his peers to represent San Antonio de Bexar and rode under cover of darkness to Washington-on-the-Brazos; before leaving he left a jug of whiskey to be shared amongst his comrades, the heroes who died at the Alamo.

In that spirit, we invite you, our friends and comrades, to enjoy Maverick Whiskey in honor of Sam and in memory of the 187 who died fighting for the Republic of Texas at the Alamo. All Maverick Spirits will be handmade in San Antonio at our facility at 115 Broadway.
