FORT WORTH, Texas, Oct. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Firestone & Robertson Distilling Co., North Texas' first artisanal whiskey distillery, is pleased to announce that T-X Blended Whiskey will be distributed throughout Louisiana effective immediately. Launched in June 2012, T-X Blended Whiskey is a rapidly growing whiskey brand that has been quickly embraced by consumers, retailers and mixologists throughout Texas. The handcrafted whiskey was named "Best American Craft Whiskey" in addition to earning a Double Gold Medal at the 2013 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, one of the world's most highly regarded spirits competitions. Louisiana is the first territory outside of Texas to sell this highly acclaimed whiskey.
"The response to our whiskey has been truly remarkable. T-X, vanished off the shelves when we launched and forced liquor stores to start waiting lists in order for customers to get their hands on a bottle," said Troy Robertson, co-owner of Firestone & Robertson Distilling Co. "We take a local approach and put a handcrafted touch on our product and believe its appeal will be far-reaching."
T-X Blended Whiskey is a premium pour with notes of vanilla, caramel, and honey butter. Firestone & Robertson Distilling Co. is also crafting a straight bourbon whiskey produced with indigenous Texas ingredients and resources, which is currently in the aging process.
"Sharing our whiskey with our neighbors in Louisiana is a natural next step. It took us over two years to develop T-X, and we really enjoyed the artistic demands of creating something we think turned out to be pretty special," said Leonard Firestone, co-owner of Firestone & Robertson Distilling Co. "We certainly hope that folks in Louisiana will come to enjoy T-X's unique flavor and smooth profile. It's fantastic neat, on the rocks, or in a cocktail."
Leonard Firestone and Troy Robertson built the distillery in 2010, and the operation has now become an attractive tourist destination. Located just south of downtown Fort Worth, visitors learn about the whiskey distilling and aging process, and how the company's team restored a prohibition-era building that showcases numerous unique architectural features. Guests witness first hand how the company builds its signature bottle tops, which includes a piece of cowboy boot leather procured from local boot makers. Tours are held on Saturday afternoons and include product sampling. As of September 1, 2013, guests to the distillery are permitted to purchase a limited amount of whiskey produced at the distillery.
T-X Blended Whiskey, which retails for around $35, is available in a growing number of liquor stores and on-premise locations throughout Louisiana. Glazer's, one of the country's largest beverage distributors, is their exclusive distributor.
Established in 2010, Firestone & Robertson Distilling Co. is a premiere artisanal whiskey distillery in North Texas. Owners, Leonard Firestone and Troy Robertson, have come together with a passion to create one-of-a-kind whiskeys of exceptional quality. The first - named T-X Blended Whiskey - is a premium product that is artistically crafted with select whiskeys sourced for their complexity and range of character. Firestone & Robertson's yet to be released second product, a straight bourbon whiskey, is produced with locally grown corn and wheat, and a proprietary yeast strain isolated from a North Texas pecan nut. The distillery is located in a prohibition-era industrial warehouse in Fort Worth, Texas.
