About the Bus Tour
The saying that everything is bigger in Texas extends far past the vibrant and massive local beer scene to an array of local distilleries producing an array of excellent spirits, including whisky, gin, vodka, rum, and agave-based concoctions, and more brewed right here in Dallas - Fort Worth. Come with us and have a taste — of the local spirits scene.
What to Expect
There are as many distilleries in Texas as there were in the country when the American craft whiskey scene started gaining traction after the Great Recession of 2008, and Dallas-Fort Worth is at the center of the revolution.
As we waited for our whiskey to age, we created vodkas and gins that showcased Texas grains and botanicals. Next, we went on to corn whiskeys and moonshine, which became more and more popular nationwide. As local distilleries started producing single malt whiskeys made from malted barley grown in the state, a small distillery in Denison won the first-ever World's Best Bourbon award at the beginning of 2020, the first time a distillery outside Kentucky achieved such recognition. This event changed the game and threw the North Texas craft industry into the national spotlight.
So what is this tour about? It's a discovery journey to sip, sample, and buy North Texas' best homegrown spirits while learning some of the secrets of the craft distilling magic.
