Balcones Distilling

Distillery in Waco - 58.64 mi

Established in 2008, Balcones Distilling is only the second Texas distillery to get its distiller’s permit but it beat out the competition when it released Baby Blue corn whisky to the market in 2009. Dubbed “the original Texas whisky”, Baby Blue's market debut achieved historic firsts. It marked “the first time Texans could buy a bottle of Texas made whisky”.  Balcones Distilling made history again in December 2012 when Balcone's Distilling's "1" Single Malt beat out whiskies from more established Scotch houses in London’s Best in Glass competition. Dubbed “The Judgement of London”, the win “helped legitimize American craft distilleries… and signaled the emergence of Texas as a whiskey-producing region”. The distillery produces three lines. Their Classics are year-round whiskies available at distributors. Also, the Annual Releases are “released only once throughout the calendar year”. Finally, their Special Releases are “extremely limited” whiskies including some that "may never be re-released". As a testament to their commitment to quality, the "1" Single Malt still continues to win awards to this day!

Bartletts Distillery

Distillery in Conroe - 77.33 mi

Bartletts Distillery takes its name after one of Van Barkin’s ancestors. The distillery’s establishment is a perfect example of someone finding opportunities in the face of adversity. Van worked in oil and gas until, after 20 years in the industry, he was laid off in 2015. With basic knowledge in brewing his own alcohol and beer, Van and his wife decided on the direction he was going to take. In 2016, the husband and wife team established the distillery, and in 2017 purchased the Conroe property it stands on. By July 2018, the Barkins were in the liquor business. Bartletts Distillery's current products include white, dark, gold, and spiced rums, single malt whiskeys, and an un-aged version of its single malt whiskey. They recently renovated their tasting room. It now accommodates more people, and includes a small stage for live performances. They also made restrooms compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Kooper Family Whiskey Co.

Distillery in Ledbetter - 81.86 mi

Kooper Family Whiskey Co. is just a quick drive from Austin, Houston, College Station and everywhere in between. The "interior is inviting, with dark tones and stacks of whiskey barrels" while "the outside of the facility is unassuming". Their "bar is stocked with their locally produced whiskey and rye". Visit for a "unique experience". Have a flight. Their "bourbon is delicious" and the "base rye" is "good" which "make a great Manhattan". Plus, the "barrel reserve" is "also delicious". When you want to sample, try their "flight in that order as the barrel reserve has the highest ABV content". It is "worth the drive on to try it out" and "it's not often you get a tasting with the person who blended and bottled the whiskey by hand".

Jimmy’s Texas Bourbon

Distillery in Tyler - 84.19 mi

Jimmy Hines was a torpedo bomber pilot in WWII and his goggles are the inspiration for the brand and his attitude the inspiration for the tagline 'through hero's eyes'. Jimmy's Texas Bourbon made a "neat trick". They "mask the youth of the whiskey by dousing it in Port! So what does it taste like? Port with corn whiskey poured into it. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but that's not really a bourbon thing either". Plus, "the port is definitely there but not so overpowering that you can’t tell it’s a bourbon either". You can "definitely get the classic vanilla, caramel and fresh oak in both the nose and palate with the added touch of the fruits of the port wine". It is "a light and refreshing twist to a traditional bourbon".

Distillery at Kiepersol

Distillery in Tyler - 84.36 mi

The Distillery at Kiepersol released in 2014 its first product called Dirk's Vodka. When you drink this vodka, it has "no bad after taste" and "each drop is consistent". It is "distilled from grapes" with a "neutral aroma with the faintest touch of almond sweetness". Its "palate is silky and lightly sweet". The flavor also has some "almond and cocoa powder, and finishing with a flicker of alcohol heat". This vodka is just one of the few American vodkas made using grapes rather than wheat, barley, potatoes, and other more common ingredients. You may also want to try Jimmy's Texas Bourbon & Pierre's Texas Rum, also from this distillery.

Banner Distilling Company

Distillery in Manor - 95.11 mi

Banner Distilling Company founders Logan Simpson and Anthony Jimenez had a dream of putting up their own distillery. Simpson has a Ph.D. in Chemistry, while Jimenez has a family history of bootlegging during Prohibition. Both were engineers at the same company and one day decided they had enough. With a budget of just $45,000, they established Banner Distilling in 2012. Using Craigslist, Google, and lots of resourcefulness, they designed and created their own still for just $300. Meanwhile, they kept their day jobs and toiled on their distillery nights and on weekends. They released Banner Organic Vodka in 2014 ahead of their preferred whiskey products so that that it could generate enough income while the whiskeys aged. The vodka went on to win multiple awards. The following year, they released their first bottles of Banner Wheat Whiskey, which also won accolades in different competitions. Cheers to bootstrapping!
