This show is Part 2 of our two part series, at Gulf Coast Distillers in Houston, Texas. In Part 1 we explored the distillery with Juilian Geraldo, their Head Distiller. In Part 2, we sit down with Julian in Ben’s Den, Gulf Coast Distillers fantastic tasting room and he walks us through a tasting of the distillery’s entire lineup of Texas Whiskies.
The lineup included their white dog, and their three versions of Giant Texas Bourbon. We talk mash bills, proofs, barrel management and barrel selection. Julian also gives us a rundown on the process to become a Certified Texas Whiskey. Julian also gave us some hints on some future products to be released so you definitely want to tune in for that.
I got to tell you, when I walked into the tasting I wasn’t real familiar with Giant Texas Bourbon, and frankly throughout the tasting, I was a bit speechless. From the start, the White Dog was on point and the whole line was tasty. Because of the reasonable price point on all their whiskeys, I think I just underestimated what we were about to taste and they just nailed it.
The future is definitely looking bright for Gulf Coast Distillers. So you definitely need to get down to the Ben’s Den tasting room and checkout all of their whiskeys.
