Dallas, Texas-based New Artisan Spirits has launched Roxor Botanical Bourbon, a new flavored whiskey infused with 20 botanicals. The base whiskey is a 2-year-old Bourbon made by MGP before New Artisan takes over the infusion process. While the company has not disclosed its full list of botanicals, founder Don Short said that the whiskey did not include juniper or any added sugar. Roxor Botanical Bourbon is now available from the company’s tasting room with retail expansion to follow once the company has built up enough inventory.

Ingram’s whiskies are matured on a patent-pending floating rickhouse moored on the banks of the Mississippi River in Ballard County, Kentucky.
