Maverick Spirits Releases New Reposado Single Barrel for Texas Independence Day

In honor of Texas Independence Day, San Antonio-based Maverick Distilling is launching a special release, Samuel Maverick Tricentennial Edition Agave Reposado. The Samuel Maverick Tricentennial Edition Agave Reposado is a Texas take on tequila, made with 100% Organic Blue Agave fermented in-house and distilled with a hybrid pot and column still, aged onsite just steps from the Alamo for two years and two months, and bottled at Maverick Distilling in downtown San Antonio. Beginning February 27, this rare, 185-bottle limited-edition release will be available for purchase solely at Maverick Distilling located at 115 Broadway, San Antonio, Texas 78205.

“Agave spirits made in the Lone Star State are the perfect choice for celebrating Texas Independence Day,” said Maverick Distilling owner and co-founder, Kenneth Maverick. “We had the unique Texan-Mexican-American culture in mind when we produced Samuel Maverick Tricentennial Edition Agave Reposado. This exclusive spirit honors the cradle of Texas Liberty while honoring the Mexican culture and San Antonio’s Western heritage.”

Agave Spirits were recognized as an official spirits category in the United States by the Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) on May 4, 2020, when its rule update went into effect. The TTB ruling affirms that Tequila and Mezcal must be made in Mexico according to Mexican laws and regulations and that any agave spirit made in the U.S. must fall under the catch-all Agave Spirits category. Maverick Distilling was the first distillery in the U.S. approved for producing Agave Spirits and was approved for COLAs for Blanco and Reposado in 2020. With Maverick Distilling’s proximity to Mexico and history in San Antonio, it is an obvious choice for the distillery to produce Texas first certified Agave Spirits.

Samuel Maverick Tricentennial Edition Agave Reposado is distilled from 100% Organic Blue Agave nectar and aged for two years and two months in oak barrels previously used for award Maverick Whiskey® in the subterranean bank vault Maverick Distilling giving it a gorgeous amber color. This particular barrel was an award-winning used Samuel Maverick Triticale Whiskey barrel. This approachable floral and fruit forward spirit has nose of toasted pecans and maple pancakes with delicious flavors of apple blossom, peach and prickly pear, that finishes with warm caramel, nutmeg, cinnamon, and clove. Samuel Maverick Tricentennial Edition Agave Reposado is a delicious sipping Agave Spirit, and is also great in top shelf margaritas, palomas, and ranch water.

The colors on the label were selected to honor of the flag that flew over the Alamo during the famous battle. The defenders fought for the 1824 Mexican Constitution that gave women the right to vote and own land, and Texians the right to own land.
