Went here on a friday before closing and the owner was happy enough to give us a presentation and tasting. He was extremely thorough and generous with his knowledge and product. The aged gin brings new meaning to sipping a gin.

Enjoyed hearing about the spirits and tasting them. We also purchased a vodka drink that was very tasty. This was my second time in over a year to go. We didn't do a tour, only the tasting. Call ahead for their hours of operation.

Great bourbon, and gin. Owner is very knowledgeable and welcomes guest to sample his product line. Per the owner, their bourbon won 1st place in a recent competition. Highly recommend this distillery--a must see if traveling between Austin and Houston.

Very cool place. Smithville is an iconic small-town that has a lot of charm, but Bone Spirits really makes it a destination. Fun day trip. VERY good bourbon.

The owner, Jeff, explained his process of farm to bottle in a very entertaining way. Each thing that is unique to his distillery he makes known to the visitors, and there is a lot that is unique! At the end I had a Moody June...More
