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.

Tours are very informative, but fun! I had no idea that learning about the process of booze making could be so much fun. We also volunteered to bottle bourbon for two days and it was the best two days "off" from my daily routine that...More

Even if you are not a fan of bourbon (shameful), this tour is definitely worth your time. It's kinda out-of-the-way unless you're going to Luckenbach (a great idea) or touring the wineries (a really good idea) or taking the long way to San Antonio (a...More
