About Treaty Oak Red Handed 10 Year Old Rye Whiskey
Founded by Daniel Barnes, Treaty Oak whiskeys are a fusion of scientific method and innovation. Their modern approach to traditional distilling and aging processes coupled with meticulously selected local ingredients yield a high-quality spirit using custom-made stills.
Treaty Oak whiskeys are made using pure Hill Country limestone spring water. They source organic, heirloom corn varietals from Panhandle farmers and mill them at James Brown’s bespoke Barton Springs Mill.
Treaty Oak Distillery is named after the famous 500-year old tree in Austin, under which Stephen F. Austin signed agreements defining the borders of Texas. Their gins are called Waterloo, after the original name of Austin. They moved to Dripping Springs, a place with a rich history of gatherings and shared perspectives.
Central Texas has a very different climate than Kentucky and other areas producing whiskey. The wide swings of temperature and humidity allow for a maturation that is specific to the weather of the hill country. Their non climate controlled rickhouse was designed to showcase the dynamic climate.
Red-Handed Rye is sourced from the Schenely Distillery and aged 10 years at 100 proof. This rare gem boasts of young green pepper with a hint of pear and green apple, balanced by a mild caramel and rich spice finish. The result is a unique and complex drinking experience.

As American as the bald eagle, rye whiskey was first brewed in the American Northeast in the 1600s. Even George Washington distilled it after leaving the Oval Office, so there’s no way of denying its origin.
It’s distinguished from bourbon for its original and unique spicy notes.
By law, rye whiskey must be made from at least 51% rye grain, aged in new and charred oak barrels for at least two years, and bottled at no more than 62,5% ABV.
