Garrison Brothers Distillery is Texas' first and oldest bourbon distillery....

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.

if you like this kind of thing, pretty darn cool! about 30 minutes+ from Horseshoe Bay Resort but this was neat! This is the real deal! Mr. Garrison was there, and apparently is everyday. Staff was awesome. One of the folks ( not with us ) was there to buy a barrel and just watching the process was great. Post... More

We had a wonderful tour at the distillery, well done all around, interesting samples along the production of their bourbon and nice samples at the end. While waiting around, you can sample, sit at the fire and make s'mores (they provide ingredients). Nice tour!

We are so appreciative of The Garrison Brothers staff for taking care of us. First we showed up a little late, then our tickets were for the wrong day. The person who checked us in was very nice about it and his friendly smile and great attitude were a hallmark of this terrific tour. My father loved the information on... More

We visited the distillery with another couple on an anniversary trip, and it did not disappoint! The tour guide and other workers were very knowledgeable and passionate about the distillery and making bourbon. None of us really drink bourbon, but we all thoroughly enjoyed the tour. The location is beautiful especially around sunset, so a late afternoon/early evening tour made... More

What a beautiful location and a fun and informative tour. The guys that work there are super knowledgeable and funny and do everything from making the bourbon to educating the tourists. My only downside would be that despite their reserve product being incredibly tasty I felt it was overpriced and their more mainstream bourbon wasn't what I had hope for.... More

So glad we stopped by. We did the kentucky bourbon trail which we enjoyed but was curious about a bourbon made in texas. So glad we stopped by. Great tour and even had a campfire going and could make smores! We didn't want to leave!

We drove out-of-town guests to Hye to take the tour. We were very pleasantly surprised at the depth of the tour. It easily equalled our experiences in KY in August. My hubby thought it was much better. Take an extra $100 and your SUV and you can own one of their rejected but used barrels. We didn't have room in... More

Stopped in for a tasting. They offer 4 different Texas Whiskeys in a quaint friendly atmosphere. There are other refreshments available. The host was friendly and informative. Giant Jinga and darts are available for entertainment. Tours are available, but we did not go on it. Great views to enjoy while you sip. Gift store offers Garison Bros. merchandise. Worth a... More

Booked a tour for a Saturday for 12:00. On the dot the tour started. We enjoyed the tour and found the why and how for producing a fine Bourbon. Enjoyed the sampling and sitting around the grounds. Very relaxing

You will want to kick your feet up and hang out with everyone who works here. They are passionate about what they do. The built an amazing distillery with their own unique touch that will make you want to wander around the grounds before, during, and after your tour.
