This is big…Texas big
If you know Hooten Young, you know our history lies deep in the pursuit of freedom and a strong drink. And if you don’t know us yet…well, it’s an honor to meet. It is with great pride that we announce, Hooten Young is coming home to Texas. We are thrilled to be celebrating this homecoming moment, bringing our whiskey back to the very place that inspired its founding.
Our Texas Roots
Co-founder and US Master Sergeant Norm Hooten is a proud native from seven generations of Texas whiskey drinkers. After leaving Texas to serve in the military, he returns home with his American Whiskey, plenty of stories, and the excitement to bond with those around him.
Along with Hooten, Tim Young co-founded Hooten Young. Young is no stranger to the big and tall spirit of the Lone Star State, raised in Texas and a Baylor University alumni. With family in Texas, he’s grateful to be sharing this moment with his home state.
Through Hooten and Young, deep Texas roots run passionately through our blood and lives through our craftsmanship.
The expansion to our native state has been long-awaited. And soon, coming to a store near you, our American-made whiskey will be available in Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, and Austin — with plans to expand from there.
A Craft, Distinguished
Hooten Young American Whiskey was uniquely crafted in collaboration with 1 of the world’s 269 Master Sommeliers, George Miliotes. A proud co-founder, Miliotes artfully combines his distinguished palette with Hooten Young’s Texas roots to create a thought-provoking experience you simply cannot fake.
It is a whiskey that has been aged to perfection — with 12 years of rest and the accolades to prove it…ranked Number 1 American Blended Whiskey with a Double Gold rating in the Cigar & Spirits Magazine World Spirits Competition. Marked by tasting notes of maple, baked apple, vanilla, and creme, we encourage you to sip this one slowly and in good company.
Hooten Young is a veteran-owned and mission-driven brand committed to honoring the many brave servicemen and women who have fiercely fought and continue to fight for our freedoms. Meticulously crafted, our whiskey represents courage, the strive for excellence, and pride for our nation.
And so, to our newest neighbors, we look forward to sharing the experience of our whiskey with you. With drinks in our hands and stories to tell, we raise our glass to you, Texas. We’re coming home…
