the spirits of 1845

certified texafied

preemption

Between 1846 - 1898 the State of Texas continued issuing preemption grants to early Texas settlers. In 1860, the ancestors of our Distiller received their preemption grant from the State of Texas. His family still owns the original homestead. Many relatives have been born on that property. His Grandmother, now in her 90’s, still lives on that land and operates the Family ranch. With the birth of the next generation, their roots are now eight generations Texas strong. 

Our Preemption Texas Straight Bourbon pays homage to the Republic of Texas and its settlers. Our first bottling of the Preemption Texas Straight Bourbon was released in Spring 2022.
