Garrison Brothers distillery tour is a delightful experience from the time you turn off of 290. You realize you are going to see something special, something out-of-the-box...and of course you already know it's the only bourbon maker in our great state! (Most of the male employees had full beards btw)
My oldest son and I were there in November 2013, were welcomed at the cabin with drinks, and then climbed aboard the wagons for a trip up the hill to where the serious business of crafting fine bourbon is done.
The process itself is fascinating: the origins of all the ingredients are carefully explained, as is preparation of mash and white dog, there are huge gleaming copper kettles, the bottling process, and then the tasting! We each purchased our very own bottle, sealed it with deer hide and wax, and pressed into the hot wax an image of the star of Texas! It goes without saying that the bottle itself is a work of art, and the contents are deliciously smooth.
We had a wonderful time and I highly recommend the Garrison Bros. tour - it is a unique Texas experience!
