Garrison Brothers Distillery

Dan Garrison left advertising to open a distillery because he knew that by using organic Texas Panhandle corn, red winter wheat and two-row barley, he could make great bourbon. In order to learn his craft, Dan spent time in Kentucky to learn from the old masters. While there, he drew sketches of some of the big Kentucky distilleries. Combining the sketches with guesswork and trial-and-error allowed him to engineer much of his own equipment.

Nestled on a ranch in the Texas desert, the high and dry heat deeply affects the whiskey's aging process, changing the time needed and giving it a distinct flavor, too.
