The Best Little Still House In Texas.

Garrison Brothers Distillery is a small distilled spirits plant located in the Texas Hill Country, very close to the LBJ Ranch. They manufacture Garrison Brothers Texas Straight Bourbon Whiskey there, just outside the tiny town of Hye. They just posted their Fall 2009 newsletter, here.

Unlike some so-called micro-distilleries that make a lot of noise but sell whiskey they didn't make, Garrison Brothers is doing it the right way. For the last couple of years they have just gone along, quietly filling barrels, waiting for them to mature into a bourbon they'll be proud to sell. They still won't predict exactly when that will be, but they've filled more than 400 barrels, and even though their casks, at 10 and 30 gallons each, are smaller than the standard 53 galloners, that's still a lot of whiskey.

If you are interested in American whiskey you might just want to bookmark the Garrison Brothers web site. This is one to watch.
