I decided to drive through the Lone Star State to find out more about a distillery that has recently gained serious acclaim in the small town of Hye, just an hour west of Austin. The Garrison Brothers Distillery had me fired up to witness the authenticity of the first and oldest legal whiskey distillery in the state of Texas. I took a tour of the facilities on a Friday night for $10 and tasted their award-winning whiskey, wine, and moonshine. Passion was evident each step of the way during the tour. Equally impressive was the quality of the people, the product, and the “best little stillhouse in Texas.” My advice is to make your reservations early, and come thirsty.
