Overview

Garrison Brothers Distillery is Texas' first and oldest bourbon distillery. Our bourbon is hand-made from corn to cork right here on our little ranch. Tours are Thursday through Sunday @ 10am, noon, 2pm & 4pm. We'll teach you the entire process on how great bourbon is made. You'll taste our sweet mash, sample our white dog & end your visit with a taste of our fine bourbon. We strongly encourage that you call ahead so we can place you on our tour schedule.

We loved everything about this place. Staff was super friendly. Grounds were inviting and made you just want to hang out. Loved the bathrooms with a view. We want to go back and volunteer for bottling.

I wouldn’t bring kids on the tour. They will be bored (they can’t do any tastings) and they probably won’t like the smell. The grounds by the gift shop has a swing and horseshoes they can play.
