Cognac Cask Straight Bourbon - OON
Each year during the holiday season, we celebrate Texas artists with a special Distillery Reserve Series release where the artist is given our labels as a blank canvas to work with directly. Two years ago we worked with Austin abstract artist Rachel Dickson for the job, and she hand-painted each label. Last year we partnered up with Austin graffiti artist Zuzu, who produced over 2,000 unique labels for our holiday release. This year, we’ve turned to up-and-coming abstract muralist Kel Brown to produce over a thousand one-of-a-kind labels for our December Cognac Cask Bourbon. As usual the bottles will be magnificent, with the rich layers of Kel’s art echoing the complexity of the spirit within.
ABOUT THE WHISKEY
Made from 100% Texas grains, this whiskey shares a mashbill with our flagship straight bourbon whiskey, The Musician. It has been aged for over 2 years, and then finished in French cognac barrels for 17 additional months which has made it into something completely unique and unmistakably delicious. This cask finished bourbon is bottled at 108 proof (54% ABV) and is made up of 70% White Corn, 25% Rye, and 5% Malted Barley.
MASHBILL: 70% White Corn, 25% Rye, 5% Malted Barley
AGE STATEMENT: Aged 2.5 Years
ABOUT THE LABEL ART
This year we tapped abstract muralist Kel Brown to produce hundreds of unique labels for our holiday release. A rising star in the Austin art scene, Brown has been making his mark on the outdoor walls of Austin – and in the city’s galleries too. A former artist-in-residence at Pine Street Station, Brown has collaborated with the SXSW music festival, the City of Austin, and the George Washington Carver Museum.
