The Great Debate: Which Texas Bourbon is Your Favorite?

State & Allen

We’re got pride the size of Texas when it comes to supporting our own.

 

Bourbon distilleries have been popping up across the great state of Texas, and we feel it’s our duty in life to try them all. Our team carefully curates a list of our favorites and then we offer those to you in our Dallas restaurant. So dare we ask… which Texas bourbon is your favorite? Here are a few we offer at State & Allen to jog your memory:

 

TX Bourbon

You can’t really go wrong with the award-winning flavors of TX Bourbon or TX Bourbon Whiskey. While almost every distillery in the country uses commercial yeast in their product, TX Bourbon uses a proprietary strain that they hand picked from a pecan in North Texas! On the rocks or neat, this bourbon delivers delicious undertones of caramel, cinnamon, and fruit.

 

Witherspoon

Deep in the heart of Old Town Lewisville, Texas you’ll find a distillery that specializes in the craft of small batch bourbon. Best enjoyed neat, this 100 proof whiskey packs a Texas-sized punch!

 

Balcones

The original Texas whiskey, Balcones distills all their whiskey on site, never reselling anyone else’s whiskey and never using barrels that are sourced from other distilleries. We carry 6 delicious Balcones whiskies, including the Balcones Rumble Cask Reserve, which is only released once every calendar year.

 

Herman Marshall

Herman Marshall is distilled right here in Dallas, Texas! We carry 3 different Herman Marshall Bourbons, including the Herman Marshall Rye – the best Texas rye! Here’s an insider tip: order this one with an ice cube, as it will open the flavor of the rye and release hints of vanilla.

Our Texas Pride: Locally Crafted Spirits at State & Allen

State & Allen

Texas pride never dies.

 

Being from the Lone Star State, we’re proud to serve a huge selection of craft beer and spirits crafted right here in the great state of Texas. While our selection is vast, don’t be fooled into thinking we just offer anything on our menu. Each spirit is carefully selected for its unique flavor and quality finish.

 

So what Texas spirits are on our menu? Here are a few of our favorites, available now at State & Allen Kitchen + Bar:

 

·     Henderson Whiskey: Produced right here in Dallas, Henderson Whiskey is simply great whiskey. No need to jazz it up- order it neat and you’ll love the vanilla and cinnamon undertones. It’s perfect for someone who thinks they don’t enjoy whiskey. Trust us – try this one and it will change your mind!

·     Witherspoon Bourbon: Visit the Witherspoon Distillery in Lewisville, TX on a weekend and you’ll not only find great bourbon, but a great atmosphere too! We love this bourbon’s rich American taste. It’s smooth and 100 proof (that’s 50% alc. by volume people).

·     Tito’s Texas Vodka: Tito’s has become one of our favorites for mixing with just about anything. (Moscow Mule’s anyone?!) This delicious vodka is micro-distilled in Austin, Texas in old-fashioned pot stills. It’s quality you can taste.

·     Herman Marshall Rye: The only Texas Rye, Herman Marshall is pretty darn good stuff. While we normally recommend serving whiskey neat, trust us and try this one with an ice cube. It opens up the flavor of the rye, bringing out hints of vanilla.

 

Anyone else thirsty at this point?! Join us this week at State & Allen to enjoy Texas’ finest spirits! Conveniently located at the corner of State St. and Allen St. in Uptown Dallas, we’re open for lunch, dinner, Dallas happy hour, and late night drinks.
