(2/7/2017) Pilot Point TX: Western Son Distillery, Texas based spirits company, recently rebranded and unveiled a redesign of their Red River Whiskey logo, liquid and look. Since 2011 Western Son Distillery has been making fine whiskies and finding a growing fan base throughout Texas and surrounding states. With rebranding, Western Son Distillery is committed to a bottle, logo and packaging that matches the quality and sophistication of what is inside.
Red River Whiskey hit shelves six years ago and has grown quickly in popularity amongst whiskey aficionados. Co-owners, Evan Batt and John Straits, explained, “As we have gotten to know our fan base, we wanted to give them a bottle that they could relate to and stood out from the others. We believe we have achieved just that.”
“Red River Texas Bourbon Whiskeys are super premium and we wanted our bottling and packaging to reflect the true Texas tradition that our whiskeys are made from,” said Batt. “In addition to our new bottle and subtle logo redesign, we are finishing the Red River Bourbon Whiskey in pinot noir casks.”
Vinny Messina, craftsman behind Red River Whiskey, delights in the results of marrying Red River Bourbon made of Texas and American grains and the beauty of a pinot noir wine cask finish. “Good Whiskey takes you on a journey, Great whiskey is what you remember along the way.” Messina explained, “I am always looking, tasting, experimenting, but I knew we are on to something special with this finish.”
Texas born and bred, Vinny hails from the warm gulf coast of Beaumont, TX. Vinny’s Italian heritage, a family deeply rooted in the adult beverage industry, and four loving uncles ensured him a sophisticated palette as a young man. Vinny would never be a stranger to the best whiskies and was classically trained by distillers throughout the country. With a passion for history, music and good whiskey, Vinny is a masterful artisan that truly appreciates where science and recipes end and craftsmanship begins.
The new bottles and packing display a mallard duck reinforcing the connection between Red River Whiskey and native Texas wildlife. A portion of sales is dedicated to preserving Texas wildlife. Batt & Straits are big supporters of “drinking for a cause.”
New bottles and packaging hit stores this week and are available in Red River Bourbon, Rye and Canadian Style. MSRP of $34.99. To learn more about Red River Whiskey and Western Son Distillery, please visit us at redriverwhiskey.com.
