Fort Worth’s Firestone & Robertson Distilling Co. is going into the Deep South. The company, an artisanal distillery, today announced the release of TX Whiskey throughout the state of Georgia.
“Over the last few years, we have heard from a significant number of Georgians who had the opportunity to try TX Whiskey while in Texas, and had become fans,” said Troy Robertson, co-founder of F&R. “We can’t wait to share our whiskey with others across the state.”
Founded in 2010 by Leonard Firestone and Troy Robertson, F&R’s distillery is located near downtown Fort Worth and has become a popular attraction in the growing area.
TX Whiskey, was awarded “Best American Craft Whiskey” honors at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
“We create TX Whiskey batch by batch at the distillery following our proprietary formula. As whiskey constantly changes while maturing in our oak barrels, we immediately discovered, and came to enjoy, the art of producing TX Whiskey,” said Firestone. “We love hearing people’s reactions when they first sample TX Whiskey. Typically, people will remark that they’ve never had such a smooth whiskey. That’s very rewarding, because it’s exactly what we hoped to accomplish.”
TX Whiskey retails for approximately $37 and is available in select retail stores and bars across the state. It is distributed by Savannah Distributing Company.
