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 long do tours last?
Tours typically last 1 to 2 hours. Remember, 68 acres is a lot of ground to cover. The tour length often depends on who is giving the tour and how much they have had to drink.
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 email@example.com. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
Do I need reservations to stop by and enjoy some bourbon?
Reservations are your best bet if you’re planning on a tour, but they’re not needed if you’d just like to sit and sip some bourbon in the sunshine. Come on by.
