“Too much of anything is bad,
but too much good whiskey is barely enough.”
-Mark Twain

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.

[tasting notes]

Alamo Whiskey

A grain forward whiskey distilled from the Maverick family mashbill, aged in new oak for 1 day with a nose of light brown sugar, candied cinnamon, creamed corn, and black pepper. The palate is delightfully smooth with notes of crème brulee, corn pudding, vanilla, and spice. The finish is mellow with lingering notes of spearmint, cardamom, and allspice.

Light Whiskey

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.

Texas Dry Gin

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.
