Thank you for your interest in Garrison Brothers Distillery and good bourbon. We believe good bourbon can change the world. Good bourbon makes humans better people. Good bourbon builds solid friendships, strengthens one’s faith and creates legendary stories. The men and women at Garrison Brothers Distillery are extremely proud of the bourbon we make.
We are also proud to be an active contributor to the Texas Hill Country and to support solid, nurturing communities like Hye, Stonewall, Johnson City, Blanco and Fredericksburg. At Garrison Brothers Distillery, we believe it is important to respond to every donation or sponsorship request that is submitted for consideration. However, due to the countless number of requests that are received daily for donations, sponsorships and advertising, we are not able to honor all of them. Because of the demand, we have streamlined the application process and today we must accept all requests online only.
Donation Request Guidelines
Please note: Only requests meeting these guidelines will be considered. It is the responsibility of the requesting individual or organization to obtain a copy of and familiarize themselves with these guidelines.
Because resources are limited, we reserve our support for people, groups, causes and events that best represent Garrison Brothers Distillery’s giving priorities of honoring those who serve or have served in our military and their families, taking care of folks in the communities where we operate and where we live, and supporting the individual and personal issues and causes that are important to our family and our staff.
- Organizations requesting donations must be registered with the IRS as a 501(c)3 non-profit (charitable) organization.
- Organizations and individuals requesting donations or sponsorships must submit their request via our online support request form a minimum of 60 days in advance of the deadline or event. There are no exceptions to this timeframe. Requests submitted with less than a 60-day notice will not be considered. No mailed, faxed, emailed or phone-call requests will be accepted.
- Once your request is received, you will receive an automatic email reply acknowledging that it was received. If your request is approved, we will contact you at the email address or phone number you provided on your request.
- In most cases, if your request is approved, we will offer you bourbon, a bourbon gift basket, or merchandise that is sold in our gift shop or tours of the distillery. Due to the thousands of requests we receive, cash donations are infrequent and unlikely.
- Due to the sheer number of rodeo committees, fish frys, chili cook-offs and barbecue cook-offs that occur in Texas each year, we cannot support donation requests from these organizations or events. If we agreed to support one, we’d be asked to support them all, and that’s just not financially feasible.
- Garrison Brothers Distillery supports many national conservation and advocacy organizations through our corporate headquarters. For this reason, no individual contributions will be made to chapters of these national organizations.
- We are only able to offer donations or sponsor events in markets where Garrison Brothers is sold.
Thank you again for your interest in Garrison Brothers Distillery and for drinking good bourbon.
