While the whiskey has been on sale in Texas before, Old Forester and King Ranch, the birthplace of American Ranching, announced a limited-edition whisky combining two iconic brands – Old Forester King Ranch Edition.

Available only in Texas starting Nov. 1, 2022, this marks the first iteration of the limited-edition expression that celebrates the rich history of the Brown family of Brown-Forman and descendants of King Ranch founder Richard King. 

The Brown family has seven generations of whisky-making credentials, and the King Ranch family celebrates eight generations of ranching. Combined, they have 300 years of uniquely American history. In addition, the two brands are connected via the Kentucky Derby. Old Forester Bourbon is the key ingredient in every Mint Julep sold at Churchill Downs; King Ranch owned three Derby winners, including 1946 Triple Crown winner Assault.

Bottled at 105 proof from a proprietary batch of Old Forester Bourbon using heavily charred barrels, the bourbon is finished through King Ranch mesquite charcoal. The charcoal was created from mesquite trees harvested from the ranch. The process brings a touch of Texas and helps highlight the bold flavor notes in this new bourbon.

The suggested retail price for King Ranch is $69.99, and it will only be available in Texas.
