Charles Goodnight Whiskey

BLAZE YOUR OWN TRAIL IN LIFE AND IN BOURBON

BLAZE YOUR OWN TRAIL IN LIFE AND IN BOURBON

One larger-than-life Whiskey.
Two larger-than-life Texas legends.

My great-great uncle was legendary Texas cattleman Charles Goodnight, who drove herds of longhorn thousands of miles over the now-famous Goodnight-Loving Trail. His adventurous life inspired books, movies, and this bold, high-rye Texas bourbon. At a barrel strength of 115 proof, our intense whiskey delivers toasted caramel aromas, nutty flavors, and a peppery bite that lingers long past sunset.”

Charles Goodnight Straight Bourbon Whiskey is made from Texas-grown corn and water sourced from deep local underground aquifers. The mash bill is packed with rye – 36% to be exact – for a peppery spice to complement the sweetness of the corn. This bold, high rye Texas bourbon is aged in new, charred American white oak barrels for six years in the intense Texas heat for a dark, rich, and hearty character. This unique aging process, when combined with locally sourced water and corn, means Charles Goodnight Whiskey is not just distilled in Texas… it is Texas, distilled.
