Firestone & Robertson Distilling Co.

Leonard Firestone and Troy Robertson founded Firestone & Robertson Distilling Company (F&R) in 2010 and distilled and barreled the first batch of TX Straight Bourbon in 2012. F&R utilized a yeast strain that was captured and cultivated from a pecan tree nut located in Glen Rose. It is the only whiskey in the world to use a wild Texas yeast strain which creates distinct flavors of dark fruit, sweet spice and caramel. To add to the product’s authenticity, it is produced exclusively with corn and wheat grains farmed in Texas.
