Celebrating the Spirits of Texas’ Past, Present, and Future
If you’re like me, you are excited about Texas’ burgeoning distilling industry. You’ve probably swaggered into the local liquor store looking to show your Texas pride, but find yourself immediately overwhelmed by the shear number of new Texas products on the shelf. As of May 2015, there were over 60 active distilling permits in Texas, and these distillers are producing almost 200 bottled products that can be found in stores today. Where do you start? The label can only contain so much information and is often unclear. TX Spirits Geek is here to help fill in the gaps!
My Goal is Simple
Provide folks with an unbiased, consolidated source for up-to-date information on Texas distilleries and spirits. I will never tell you which products you should or shouldn’t like for any reason. Instead, I want to provide you with enough information to make that decision yourself based on the things you care about.
Who is the TX Spirits Geek?
Hi, my name is Andy. I live in Austin and I love Texas! Like most Texans, I’m proud of my state and I enjoy a good drink with good company. A few years ago, I recognized the growing trend of distilled spirit products with Texas on the label. Since then, as a hobby, I’ve been frantically trying to keep up with this growing industry. Since starting up this effort, I have visited 33 distilleries across the state! I hope to get to all of them eventually and share the things I learn with you.
