Those of us here in Texas like to brag that “everything is bigger in Texas”, and we do have a lot of BIG things: Longhorns, ten gallons Stetsons, and of course the Capitol building.
However, we here at Republic are proud to introduce something quintessentially Texas, but in a small package, OUR TEXAS MINI BOTTLE! The excitement here generated by something so proverbially ‘cute’ speaks to a big heart in a little bottle. We’ve worked hard with engineers, glass manufacturers and suppliers to create the perfect small version of the Lone Star State, but it’s what on the inside, the tequila, that counts. In introducing this new size, we hope to introduce the Republic to even more fine folks – it’s the perfect sampling size that will have those of you trying for the first time coming back for more.
In celebration of this little Lone Star State, we would like remind you of a few other tiny things in Texas:
- State Highway 168, which connects the Coast Guard Station at Galveston to State Highway 87, is the shortest main state highway in Texas at only 0.87 miles long.
- The Comal River is Texas’ shortest navigable river. It begins at Comal Springs and flows 2.5 miles until it connects to the Guadalupe River.
- Acton State Historic Site is the smallest state Park in Texas at 0.006 acres. This spot marks the grave of Davy Crockett’s second wife, Elizabeth.
- St. Martin’s Church in Warrenton is the world’s smallest active Catholic Church. It is 12ft x16ft, has 12 pews and seats about 20 people.
Remember, good things do come in small packages!
