Texas just celebrated it’s 181st anniversary of independence. In honor of that we have a list of Texas whiskey cocktails from Swift Single Malt. Started by husband and wife team Nick and Amanda Swift, this single malt is handcrafted in Dripping Springs, TX. Swift stays true to its foremost goal: to make the best single malt stateside by only incorporating the finest ingredients and creating a product that is truly handmade from grain to bottle.
