Have you tried any Texas whiskey?
Might we suggest a bottle of Tahwahkaro Distilling Co. Big Chief was able to snag a bottle on a recent trip west, so we sat down to review it.
TahWahKaro comes from a Native American term meaning ‘bend in the river’ and the original name of the water source for settlers in Grapevine, TX.
They partner with local grain suppliers throughout Texas. Their corn comes from Valley View, their rye from Denton, our malts from Fort Worth and their water right from Grapevine.
They have recently moved from Grapevine Texas, east to Palestine Texas.
We hope you enjoy Jim and Big Chief’s review. Cheers!
