Tour and Event Frequently Asked Questions
Can I bring beer, wine or liquor?
Yes, as long as you share liberally with our staff. There are certain buildings (the stillhouse and the barrel barns) where alcohol is not permitted. (This is a strange federal government thing.)
Is there an area where we can smoke?
Smoking is not permitted anywhere on the ranch. Way too dangerous! If you light up, we will physically escort you from the property. Not only is the Texas Hill Country prone to brush fires but our ranch barns and buildings contain thousands of gallons of flammable alcohol. It is just not worth the risk.
If it's raining, do you still have tours?
Tours are rain or shine!
Can I bring you samples of distilled spirits that I make at home?
Please don’t. We’d love to try your concoctions. But making distilled spirits at home is illegal. Bringing them to our place is highly illegal, since we’ve got a federal and state permit.
How much are tours?
Tours are $10 per person, $20 on Saturdays, and free if you show up on a horse. Tastings are free for humans and horses.
How do I pay?
Tours and merchandise are cash, check or credit cards.
Do you accept credit cards?
Do you provide private party tours and events?
Yes, contact Stephanie Whitworth at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let her know the date of the event and the number of guests we should anticipate.
May I take pictures or video?
Pictures are fine. Video pisses us off. Nothing more embarrassing than to be caught scratching yourself on YouTube
May I ask questions during the tour?
If you don’t there may be something wrong with you.
What about tours for large groups?
Yes, contact Stephanie Whitworth at email@example.com. Let her know the date of the event and the number of guests.
Do you have a gift shop?
Some have called it that.
Do you have restrooms?
Yes, please watch your aim, and leave the seat down for the ladies.
