MEMPHIS, TN: B.R. Distilling Company, Memphis’ oldest licensed distillery recently announced expanded distribution across Texas. Throughout the last year, B.R. Distilling Company has expanded rapidly across the country, scaling its distribution across several new states including Texas where whiskey connoisseurs, collectors, and everyday drinkers alike can now enjoy a range of offerings from the craft whiskey company that is best known for its two award-winning offerings: Blue Note Bourbon and Riverset Rye.
Blue Note Bourbon is a classic, full-bodied straight bourbon whiskey with notes of maple, caramel, and vanilla and is recognized for its long, velvet finish. Blue Note Bourbon is offered in three different expressions, all with a similar smooth taste, including Blue Note Bourbon Premium Small Batch (MSRP $52.99), Blue Note Juke Joint (MSRP $29.99), and Blue Note Bourbon Single Barrel Reserve (MSRP $59.99) with more to come in 2021. Riverset Rye is a four-year-old straight rye whiskey born from a select few barrels curated to complement each other in a manner that combines an array of rich autumnal flavors. With initial, delicate hints of cinnamon apple and vanilla on the nose, Riverset is a truly unique whiskey and available in two expressions, including Riverset Small Batch Rye (MSRP $29.99) and Riverset Single Barrel Rye (MSRP $39.99). All Blue Note Bourbon and Riverset Rye products are available now in liquor stores across the state, including Austin, Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, and more.
“We are excited to introduce Blue Note Bourbon and Riverset Rye across a state that has a great reputation for its taste in whiskey,” said McCauley Williams, President and CEO of B.R. Distilling Company. “I believe that we’ll find kindred spirits in Texas who enjoy our whiskey’s complex flavors at approachable price points. Texas makes up approximately 9% of the U.S. population, and, statistically, Texans drink a lot of whiskey. Texans know a thing or two about good music and bar-b-que, and I think they’ll find that our whiskeys pair perfectly with both.”
B.R. Distilling Company was founded in 2013 and since its change of ownership and direction in 2017, the company has quickly established itself as an emerging, disruptive force in the spirits industry. Within a matter of years, the company has acquired distribution in fourteen states, including recent expansions into the major whiskey markets of Florida, New York, and Texas with more on the horizon. The company has already earned numerous awards and medals in competitions, including the North American Bourbon and Whiskey Competition, John Barleycorn Awards, The Fifty Best Rye Whiskey Awards, and the New York International Spirits Competition. Most recently, Blue Note Bourbon Premium Small Batch, Blue Note Bourbon Juke Joint, and Riverset Rye were recognized with five Gold Medals for both taste and design at the 2020 MicroLiquor Spirit Awards.
