Inaugural San Antonio Whiskey Month Celebrates Bourbon, Supports Local Bars and Restaurants

City’s Top Cocktail Bars and Mixologists To Feature Garrison Brothers Bourbon-Infused Cocktails Nov. 13 – Dec. 13, 2020

SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS (November 12, 2020) Garrison Brothers Distillery, the first legal whiskey distillery in Texas, announced the inaugural San Antonio Whiskey Month, a month-long promotion to support local businesses while celebrating the joy of good bourbon throughout the city. The award-winning hill country bourbon maker has teamed up with some of San Antonio’s best cocktail bars and mixologists to feature a limited-time San Antonio Whiskey Month cocktail. A portion of proceeds from every cocktail sold (from both dine-in and to-go business) will benefit Good Bourbon for a Good Cause, a 501(c)3 public charity founded by the Garrison Family and their staff in 2018.

“The mission of Good Bourbon for a Good Cause is to change the world through the power of good bourbon. The inaugural San Antonio Whiskey Month gives us another tool to raise money for those impacted by the pandemic, and I’m inspired by the coalescence of our community during these uncertain times,”  said Dan Garrison, founder and proprietor of Garrison Brothers Distillery.

Participating businesses include local favorites like Bamboo, Botika, Broadway 50/50, Cover-3, Dorrego’s, Francis Bogside, Lucy Cooper’s Icehouse, On the Bend Oyster Bar, Ostra at Mokara Hotel & Spa, Paramour at the Phipps, Rebelle, The Good Kind, Tucker’s Kozy Korner, and The Well. More business will be confirmed on a daily basis and added to the running list.

“I’ve seen how creative, passionate, and innovative San Antonio talent is, especially when times are tough,” Garrison said. “That’s just one of the many reasons I’m excited for San Antonio Whiskey Month.”

San Antonio Whiskey Month customers are encouraged to share their experience on social with #sawhiskeymonth for a chance to win a Garrison Bros. prize pack (ages 21+ only). For more info, visit sawhiskeymonth.com.

 ABOUT GARRISON BROTHERS DISTILLERY

Garrison Brothers Distillery is a small farm and ranch located in the beautiful Texas Hill Country that authentically produces straight bourbon whiskey and only straight bourbon whiskey. Garrison Brothers introduced the first bourbon whiskey legally made in Texas in 2010 and has since developed a rabid fan base. They currently have a waitlist of more than 17,000 people hoping to land a spot on bottling days, and their Cowboy Bourbon™ normally sells out within hours of its release. Garrison Brothers is the first legal bourbon distillery in Texas history and is one of the first distilleries in America outside of Kentucky to produce authentic, handmade bourbon whiskey. The business was founded in 2006, though rumor has it they may have started production a little earlier.

Every expression of Garrison Brothers bourbon is made from a sweet mash bill and barrel-aged in the intense Texas climate. The extreme heat creates multiple aging seasons in a year, resulting in a darker, richer, and fuller bourbon; bolder than almost any other bourbon on the market.

At the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2020, the Garrison Brothers team was awarded a double gold medal for its Balmorhea Double-Barreled Bourbon, a silver medal for its Single Barrel Bourbon, and a bronze medal for its Small Batch Bourbon. Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible named Garrison Brothers Cowboy Bourbon™ “American Micro Whisky of the Year” in 2014 and again in 2017. The Whisky Bible also awarded the same distinction to Balmorhea Double-Barreled Bourbon in 2019 and 2020. Garrison Brothers was voted Best Craft Whiskey Distillery in America by readers of USA Today in 2017.

Garrison Brothers is a proud and active member of the communities of Blanco, Fredericksburg, Hye, Johnson City, and Stonewall. The distillery and its barrel barns are open to the public for tours in Hye, Texas. Anyone interested in learning more about Garrison Brothers Bourbon or in taking a tour of the distillery should visit garrisonbros.com or follow @garrisonbros on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
