Garrison Brothers Announces 2024 Guadalupe

Hye, Texas-based Garrison Brothers Distillery, Texas’ first legal bourbon distillery, is proud to announce the release of 2024 Guadalupe. This award-winning bourbon whiskey finished in a port wine barrel will release on Feb. 3 at the distillery and become available nationwide by end of February. Named after one of the Lone Star State’s most beautiful rivers, the 2024 Guadalupe Texas Straight Bourbon Whiskey will enter the market with a total of 10,500 bottles available including the first 1,000 to be claimed on release day at the distillery.

In its fourth release, the story of Guadalupe kicked off in 2015 when Garrison Brothers procured a local winery’s decades-old port casks to age 4-year-old bourbon. Shortly after, Garrison Brothers master distiller Donnis Todd started sourcing for a more expansive port cask bourbon project. The magic maturation combination comes from four years in white American oak casks followed by two years in tawny port casks sourced from Portugal.

As with every expression of Garrison Brothers bourbon, Guadalupe is handcrafted from grain to glass at the distillery in Hye, Texas. This limited release bourbon is bottled at 107 proof and is made with a sweet mash of number one food-grade corn, soft red winter wheat and barley, all sourced from Texas. It is proofed down with naturally sourced rainwater captured at the distillery. Every bottle of Guadalupe is numbered and hand dipped in bronze color wax to finish. A sensuous, creamy liquid, Guadalupe’s tasting notes include berry fruit, ripe plums, strawberry butter on flaky morning biscuits, toasted coffee bean notes, chocolate, and cinnamon.

“Garrison Brothers Guadalupe 2024 release is a bold beautiful bourbon that demonstrates the symphony of amazing Texas sized temperature swings in Hye paired with four years in white American oak casks then two more years in port casks,” shares Todd. 

The 2023 Guadalupe received high praise and awards including Best in Show and Platinum at the TAG Global Spirits Awards as well as Spirit of the Year, Best Multi-Barrel Whiskey and Platinum at the San Diego International Wine & Spirits Challenge. The 2023 release also took home Platinum awards from ASCOT Awards and Monterey International Wine & Spirits Competition; Double Gold from the New York International Spirits Competition; Gold from Critics Challenge International Wine & Spirits Competition, International Craft Spirits Competition, Las Vegas Global Spirit Awards, and the SIP Awards where it also earned the Consumers’ Choice Award.

Garrison Brothers Straight Bourbon Whiskey is sold nationwide at fine liquor stores and served at key restaurants and bars. Guadalupe 2024 suggested retail is $149.99. For more information and to find Guadalupe, go to
