Texas-based Rebecca Creek Distillery, one of the largest craft distilleries in North America, has released its award-winning spirits throughout the state of Missouri for the first time.
St. Louis-based Major Brands is handling distribution of the distillery’s artisan spirits, which include Rebecca Creek Fine Texas Whiskey, Texas Ranger Whiskey, Enchanted Rock Vodka, and Enchanted Rock Peach Vodka.
The distillery’s spirit lineup has received numerous medals and awards, including platinum and gold medals from the SIP Awards International Spirits Competition, double-gold medals in The Fifty Best Spirits Competition, a rating of 93 points from the Ultimate Spirits Challenge, and most recently a silver medal from the International Review of Spirits.
“Getting Rebecca Creek Distillery spirits on shelves in Missouri has definitely been a priority for us for some time,” said Steve Ison, CEO, and founder of Rebecca Creek Distillery. “We look forward to sharing our artisan-spirits with quite a few Missourians, and hopefully turn some of them into big fans of our Texas whiskeys and vodkas!”
According to the distillery website: “Based in San Antonio, Texas, the Rebecca Creek Distillery was founded in October of 2009 by Steve Ison. His vision and passion for high-quality spirits led to building our distillery using a blend of old and new technology to produce some of the highest quality distilled spirits available in the ultra-premium category.”
“Rebecca Creek Distillery has become one of the largest artisan spirits producers in the region with our vodkas and whiskey available in over 7 states and servicing many others with more on the way soon.”
“In order to truly embrace the spirit of Texas in our Texas spirits, we produce Rebecca Creek Whiskey, a blend of aged Bourbons, corn-based spirits and limestone-filtered water from the Edwards Aquifer. Our whiskey contains a mash bill of 75 percent corn, 21 percent rye and 4 percent malted barley. The goal at Rebecca Creek Distillery is to make a reasonably priced Texas whiskey that can be enjoyed by whiskey connoisseurs everywhere. We source locally for the finest ingredients and take pride in each batch we make.”
“Awards Rebecca Creek Whiskey has received: 93 points in 2015 at The Ultimate Spirits Competition, 4.5 stars for the Manhattan Cocktail in 2015 at The Ultimate Cocktail Awards, Best Value Award in 2015 at The Ultimate Spirits Competition, the Gold Medal at 2012 SIP International Spirits Competition and the Silver Medal at the 2012 Los Angeles International Spirits Awards.”
Founded in 2009 by Steve Ison, Rebecca Creek Distillery was one of the first legal distilleries in South Texas since Prohibition. It has since grown to become one of the largest craft distilleries in North America, with more than 100,000 cases expected to be sold annually by 2018. Its product lineup includes Rebecca Creek Whiskey, Texas Ranger Whiskey, Enchanted Rock Vodka, and Enchanted Rock Peach Vodka. The Distillery offers free tours on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, and its tasting room and gift shop are open-to-the-public for group tastings and private events for up to 500 people.
