Maverick’s story

Maverick’s is a whisky distillery, restaurant and event centre situated in San Antonio, Texas. This brand is dedicated to one of San Antonio’s earliest families – Sam and Mary Ann Maverick. Maverick is a term used to describe a person who thinks and acts independently of and is different from others or an unbranded calf/yearling. This word originated in the 19th century and was first used in the year 1865. ‘Maverick’ is derived from the name of Samuel Augustus Maverick (1803-1870), Signer of the Texas Declaration of Independence. A Texas lawyer, engineer and rancher who did not brand his cattle.

“Originally the land for what is now the home of Maverick Whiskey sat at the corner of the Maverick family homestead, just steps from the Alamo.”

Tasting notes by Maverick Distillery

The nose is very sweet with notes of Crème Brûlée, caramel, and stone fruit. Charred oak is prevalent as well. The palate is delightfully smooth with notes of sweet black tea, cola, and cinnamon. The finish, while silky, has the peppery bite of Rye and a touch of menthol. Great served neat in a Glencairn or in a nice Old Fashioned complete with Luxardo Cherry.

“To produce our Samuel Maverick Barrel Proof Straight Bourbon Whiskey, we expertly select the best barrels of Certified Texas Whiskey that are brought in from a Texas distillery. Once aged, we expertly blend the right barrels to bring out the sweet caramel flavors balanced with just the right pop of spice.”
