Distilleries of Central Texas
Spirits of Austin, San Antonio, & Hill Country
Sure, Texas is known for great whiskey, but the Lone Star State produces some pretty impressive – and creative – vodka, rum, tequila and liqueurs as well.
For some real Texas whiskey, be sure to stop by Hill Country stillhouses like Balcones Distillery, Rebecca Creek Distillery, and Garrison Brothers Distillery for tours and tastings. Balcones is home to Baby Blue corn whiskey, and the cask-strength True Blue Whiskey, while Rebecca Creek produces Creek Fine Texas Spirit Whiskey – and holds public tours each Saturday.
Don’t miss Sit and Sip Tours at the Garrison Brothers Distillery in Hye, not far from Johnson City and Blanco. The hour-long tour is $10 a head – free to horseback visitors – and is held at 10 a.m., noon, 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. weekdays only.
Now this isn’t the Caribbean, but that doesn’t mean Texas can’t pump out great rums in Hill Country. Sip some Pecan Street Rum from the Spirit of Texas Distillery in Pflugerville – just north of Austin – or Cypress Creek Reserve Crystal Rum and Cypress Creek Reserve Vanilla Rum at Cypress Creek Reserve in Wimberley. Cypress Creek Reserve – found near San Marcos – also features tours of their facility and Wimberley Market Days Tours.
Explore the distilleries of Texas Hill Country and the Southern Plains – you won’t be disappointed.
