The Wayback Cafe & Cottages Partners With Garrison Brothers Distillery For To Go Cocktail Kits

AUSTIN, TEXAS –  March 26, 2020
The Wayback Cafe & Cottages is excited to announce their partnership with Garrison Brothers Bourbon to provide exclusive cocktail kits which may be purchased with takeout orders. The kit will be sold for $35, and includes one 375 ML bottle of Garrison Brothers’ Small Batch Texas bourbon, two limited-edition highball glasses, bitters and a bar spoon.

“We’re excited to provide a local, premium cocktail offering to Wayback customers during such a difficult time. It’s a fun and unique way to bring joy to people while also driving more to-go orders, which in turn helps us to keep our staff employed, and helps us support other local businesses like Garrison Brothers and our distributor, Austin Shakers” said Wayback founder, Sydney Sue.

“In the interest of helping our restaurant, bar, and hotel partners, we’ve partnered with several local businesses to provide an elevated cocktail experience for businesses who can now sell alcohol-to-go,” said Sam Wakefield, Marketing Manager at Garrison Brothers Distillery. “We want to support the hospitality industry to make sure everyone comes back from this situation strong, so we’re providing the extras in the cocktail kit to our restaurant partners at no cost.”

The cocktail to go kits will be available at The Wayback beginning Friday, March 27, 2020 and are available for purchase at $35/each. Simply ask for a Garrison Brothers cocktail kit when you place your to-go food order to comply with the current TABC laws. Customers can place orders by calling (512) 520-9584.

Garrison Brothers Distillery is a small farm and ranch located in the beautiful Texas Hill Country that authentically produces 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 15,000 just to volunteer 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—and only bourbon whiskey. The business was founded in 2006.

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 Twice-Barreled Bourbon, a silver medal for its Single Barrel Bourbon, and a bronze for its Small Batch Bourbon. 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 or follow @garrisonbros on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
