Garrison Brothers Distillery fills 10,000th bourbon whiskey barrel

On Monday Hye, Texas-based Garrison Brothers Distillery, part of the first wave of small distilleries outside of Kentucky to authentically hand-produce straight bourbon whiskey, filled its 10,000th bourbon barrel.


The distillery first started operations in 2003 and first sold bourbon in Texas in 2010. Now, Garrison Brother’s Texas Straight Bourbon Whiskey is distributed all across Texas, in 25 U.S. states and overseas in Germany, the United Kingdom, Canada, New Zealand and Australia. All Garrison Brothers bourbons are made with organic grain.

The brand has received numerous industry awards. Jim Murray, in his 2017 Whiskey Bible, named Garrison Brothers Cowboy Bourbon the American Micro Whisky of the Year for the second year in a row, bestowing a 96.5 score– one of the highest scores ever issued.

The distillery is well known in the industry for its fastidious commitment to quality control. Owner Dan Garrison submits his bourbons to a laboratory annually for gas chromatography and mass spectrometry testing to assure his bourbons have the lowest levels of propanol, butyl alcohol, amyl alcohol, methanol and acetaldehyde. “We think we’re making the finest tasting, highest quality bourbon ever made and we have the reputation, awards and science to back-up this claim,” says Garrison.

To commemorate the 10,000th barrel, Garrison Brothers is hosting Winner, Winner Chicken Dinner, the distillery’s annual celebration of peaches, rodeo and great bourbon whiskey, on Saturday, June 17. More than 500 guests are expected to attend. The event will sell out quickly. Those interested in attending can find more information and make reservations here.
