Rio Brazos Distillery - Craft whiskey in the heart of Texas

The Rio Brazos Distillery makes whiskey from small batches of sweet, yellow corn and roasted barley malts that are cooked in a kettle and distilled in a 500-gallon reflux pot still. A uniquely American style known as a Tennessee narrow hearts cut, the double-distillation process involves four all-day cooks, four all-day stripping runs and a final 13-hour long spirit run. The grain solids left over from the distillation of American-grown corn and barley is donated to a local company that grows insects for poultry farming.
