16oct10:00 am4:00 pmHurricane Tough Thank You Celebration

Event Details

Join us at the Garrison Brothers Distillery on October 16th to celebrate all of those amazing folks who helped out when the Lone Star State needed them the most.

After 4 years of baking in the Texas heat, our Hurricane Tough bourbon is ready to be released into the world. All of y’all who donated back in 2017 will be able to pick up your bottle of Hurricane Tough, and we can’t wait for y’all to try it. We will also have limited-edition menu items at the Whiskey Shack, live music, a barrel auction, and much more!

And while all of the Hurricane Tough bottles are already allocated to donors, guests who did not donate back in 2017 will still have a chance to purchase a limited-edition run of double-dipped Team Rubicon Single Barrel, with a portion of the proceeds going to Team Rubicon and their continued relief efforts.

Thank you all for your continued support, and we look forward to seeing y’all at the ranch at 10 AM on October 16th!

For those of y’all who may not have heard the tale of Hurricane Tough, here’s the story:

Back in 2017, our community was rocked by the devastating effects of Hurricane Harvey, with thousands of people left without shelter or supplies.
On the day the storm slammed into the coast, Donnis and the production team had filled up 9 barrels of bourbon. So, we made the decision to put these barrels to good use, with everyone who was able to donate to Team Rubicon and Good Bourbon For A Good Cause being guaranteed a bottle from those barrels once they were ripe and ready to go.

Now, after 4 years, we’re able to celebrate the generosity of so many great folks with this special release event. Bottles of Hurricane Tough will only be available for those who donated back in 2017!

As all of the Hurricane Tough bottles are already allocated to donors, we do NOT recommend lining up on the road outside the ranch for this one. Just come on by whenever you can!
