Visit Hye

Garrison Brothers Distillery Is Dedicated To True Southern Hospitality.

When you visit our Hill Country distillery, you feel a welcoming Texas spirit, right along with the aroma of sweet corn cooking up the sugary start to a tasty bourbon whiskey. You’ll ride an open-air, dust-covered bench-lined trailer, pulled behind a Jeep, from the planked, cabin gift shop and tasting room, up the wildflower-lined hill to the cookhouse and distillery. It’s a great way to get to know the soon-to-be-friends sitting next to you.

As you wander the grounds with a masterful storyteller, you’ll smell the sweet Panhandle white corn cooking and taste the sugary sweet mash. You’ll taste the bitter distiller’s beer and tour the historic Stillhouse. You’ll sample the alarmingly high-proof white dog right from the stills and meander through the barrel barn to experience their latest limited release.

Every batch of boutique bourbon is handcrafted right here on the ranch with the finest raw materials on the planet. And we’d love to invite you down to heavenly Hye, Texas to see it all for yourself, any time you’d like.

Things To Know About Touring Our Distillery.

Can I bring beer, wine or liquor?

Yes, as long as you share liberally with our staff. There are certain buildings (stillhouse and barrel barns) where alcohol is not permitted. (This is a strange federal government bonded warehouse 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.

Are kids allowed at the distillery?

Kids are welcome on our property but we are a working ranch so we ask that you keep a close eye on them!

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 a felony. 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 provide private party tours and events?

Yes, contact us at Let us 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 us at Let us 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.
