  • The tour was informative and professionly conducted-with lots of fun thrown in. Really fascinating process to produce great bourbon. We would recommend it to any adult who enjoys fine spirits.

  • What a fantastic little gem of a distillery hidden in the country roads of Texas. The location is laid out perfectly and makes for quite the experience while spending time drinking some delicious beverages as the birds are singing around you! The bathrooms are really fun and have windows where I was able to catch a glimpse of a hummingbird! The bourbon is delicious, especially when made into an old fashioned! The staff are incredible and very informative! Loved visiting here!
  • My wife and I visited Garrison Brothers in January for a tour which we had all my our selves. Our guide was the most knowledgeable about bourbon that we've see in touring dozens of distilleries. He also told the story of Garrison brothers and I won't spoil it for you! So we had a wonderful time. Dropped some $$ in the gift shop. Then went home and we both went on the GB site and registered to volunteer for the "all volunteer bottling team." You see all bourbon bottled at GB is done by volunteers. Sure enough in mid-February we got an invite and we went back to GB on April 1 & 2 and had the time of our lives. If you love great bourbon you have to volunteer for this bucket list experience. You'll love it and make a bunch of friends from around the country in the process!
  • We love the Garrison Experience which keeps getting better. They have yummy cocktails and a story driven tour which is both entertaining and informative. I hope to come back next year and get to experience their new barrel barn. And of course I left with a bottle of single barrel!
  • Very nicely located of you like to drive the hill country. Quiet location with a nice setup for hanging out and relaxing. There‚Äôs a small gift shop to buy whiskey and extras plus a bar area that also has food. They have a whiskey flight as well as good mixed drinks. A variety of seating areas were available. Of course we walked away with a bottle and will be going back for the tour soon.
  • We've done whiskey tours all over, and this was by far our favorite. You get to see and learn about every step of the process from each of the experts. Plus, the Texas Hill Country views are amazing. The bourbon is delicious and the people are top notch. We've already been back! Watch their website for events--food and drink menus are yummy.
