Country Rockers Whiskey Myers Team up With Treaty Oak to Launch Red Handed Bourbon
Texas-based Treaty Oak Distilling teamed up with Texas-bred country rock band Whiskey Myers to launch a new iteration of the distillery’s Red Handed bourbon.
The new release was made by Bardstown Bourbon Company and aged for two years in Kentucky and Texas and will be available Nov. 1. Those who wish to purchase it can sign up to be notified by email when it is released at shoptreatyoak.com.
The flavor of the bourbon is described as “Caramel, Mild Green Pepper, Kettle Corn, Cured Tobacco, Honey.” It uses limestone-filtered water from Dripping Springs, Texas.
“Whiskey Myers and Treaty Oak Distilling have always shared two primary lenses they each view the world through: collaboration and experimentation,” Treaty Oak’s website reads. “Red Handed Bourbon brings the two groups squarely together in producing a Kentucky Bourbon with a high-rye mash bill. Just like the gritty authenticity of the Southern rock Whiskey Myers is known for, this bourbon is the real damn deal.”
And now Whiskey Myers is joining the club, which makes perfect sense — hell, “whiskey” is the first word of the band’s name; how could it not have a bottle of the stuff?
