There is so much to boast about for those of us blessed to live in Texas. Garrison Brothers’ Texas straight bourbon whiskey is like icing on the cake.
Made from pure Texas-grown organic cereal grains, combined with our nutrient-rich rainwater, Garrison Brothers bourbons are among the very best to be found anywhere in the world.
On this edition of RANCHCAST with LEM LEWIS, our host and certified whiskey sommelier Lem Lewis travels to Hye to visit with founder and proprietor Dan Garrison.
In perfect Texas entrepreneurial style, Dan comes from the “better to ask forgiveness than permission” school of business. Although just about no one believed it possible to distil quality bourbon anywhere in America other than Kentucky or Tennessee, Dan proved his skeptics wrong.
Dan bought his first still in 2006, before he even had a legal right to operate one, and shipped his first bottles in 2011. They’ve been a sell-out hit ever since.
If you love fine bourbon whiskey, or even if you never touch alcohol, you’ll enjoying drinking in Dan’s Texas swagger and his philosophy of business.
He and his family are part of a growing segment of rural producers who are demonstrating creative, alternative ways to living and working the ranching life.

There’s just something about Texans, especially entrepreneurs, that you won’t find in any other state.
Dan Garrison, proprietor of Garrison Brothers Distillery, tells RANCHCAST with LEM LEWIS that his fellow Texans are as distinctive, proud, and unique as his award-winning bourbons.
“Anyone who lives in Texas for more than three months adopts that Texas pride,” Dan says.
