~ KOOPER FAMILY ALCHEMY ~
Kooper Family Whiskey Company specializes in blending, aging and finishing premium American whiskies. The maturing of whiskey inside the barrel and the blending skills used to craft award-winning whiskies are the secret powers we crave. We scour the country looking for rare whiskeys and bring them home to Ranch Road 12 in Dripping Springs, Texas to finish and mature. We match and blend whiskies of various ages to complement each other’s flavor profile and then we barrel and age them even longer in old used Bourbon and Rye barrels.
~ UNDER THE X IN TEXAS ~
SPRING WATER ~ We proof and blend our whiskey with limestone-filtered water from Ardrey Springs, in Travis County. This spring flows with crystal clear water from the Edwards Aquifer, one of the most fertile artesian aquifers in the world. Filtered by the bedrock limestones of the Edwards Plateau, the natural minerals in the water help our whiskey develop its rich flavor profile.
HILL COUNTRY CLIMATE ~ The Hill Country has a semi-arid climate, characterized by hot summers and mild winter days. That’s about as perfect a climate as there is for aging whiskey. Dripping Springs, Texas receives about 220 days of bright sunshine per year. That’s a lot of time for our whiskey to expand into the charred staves, drawing out the sweet vanillin and buttery oak flavors.
~ AMERICAN WHISKEY ~
RYE OR DIE
In our opinion, Rye Whiskey is the finest expression of whiskey to have ever come out of a charred oak barrel.

Rye Whiskey is the spicy fire that this country was baptized in. Long before the Kentucky barons began bottling Bourbon, rye was warming American tongues and winning American hearts.

Rye is the whiskey of defiance and American independence and our love for it is as strong today as it was for the brave folks who pioneered this nation.

We craft our whiskey to pack a powerful, spicy punch; one that only rye grain can produce. We want our whiskey to flex its peppery muscles, not hide them.
~ THE KFWCO. STORY ~
The Kooper Family Whiskey Company, was founded in 2012 by Troy and Michelle Kooper, of Austin, Texas. The two have worked tirelessly for many years learning the secret science of whiskey making and blending.

They traveled all over America visiting distilleries, talking to distillers and blenders. They learned and absorbed everything they could about aging and blending whiskey. They've consulted and trained with some of the best minds in American whiskey making.

They've taken all of that learning and training, and mixed it with painstaking work and a lot of fight to found the Kooper Family Whiskey Company. Troy and Michelle both come from proud boxing families. Troy’s grandfather, Howard W. Pardekooper, was the U.S. Armed Forces Light Heavyweight Champion in 1944. Michelle’s cousin, Carlos Palomino, was the WBC Welterweight Champion of the World from 1976-1979.

That same fighting spirit is in the Kooper Family's blood and they’ve been fighting non-stop for many years to realize their dream of releasing premium American whiskies in the great state of Texas.

You may run into the Koopers out and about in Austin or Dripping Springs; if you see them, say hi, and if they look a little tired, that's cause they've been working their asses off, happily making Rye Whiskey for y'all.
