One of the biggest reasons travelers visit Fredericksburg year after year is the incredible wineries found throughout Hill Country. However, this Texas town is home to other businesses that make world-class spirits. The best way to sample these Fredericksburg creations is by mapping out a distillery tour. Start your morning with breakfast at a local restaurant or a home-cooked spread at your Cozi Vacation Rentals accommodation, then head out to sample everything from whiskey to vodka.
A 4-Stop Tour of Fredericksburg Spots
Planning your own tour instead of reserving a spot on a guided outing gives you more freedom. Take your time at each location to learn the history of the space while sampling some delicious creations.
1. Dietz Distillery
This small artisan distillery still focuses on using old-world distilling techniques. Located next to Fischer & Wieser’s Das Peach Haus, your visit includes learning about the process and history of alcohol distillation. Their products currently include gin, and peach and pear eau de vie.
2. Elk Store Winery & Distillery
Located on Main Street, this unique experience has something for everyone. The distillery bottles gin, rum, moonshine, and whiskey from a handmade Kentucky copper still. Try these spirits on their own or in a craft cocktail.
3. Salvation Spirits
Part brewery, part winery, and part distillery, this is a go-to destination the whole group will enjoy. Committed to being an environmentally conscious distillery, this spot focuses on premium gin, brandy, and vodka infused with fruit grown on-site. Try them all at The Speakeasy, a cocktail lab hidden on the 10-acre orchard.
4. Garrison Brothers Distillery
Located just outside Fredericksburg in Hye, bourbon lovers will be in heaven at this stop. Reserve your spot on a tour to see the behind-the-scenes operation that brings these spirits to life. The bourbons created here range from small batch bottles to something unique like a honey-infused straight bourbon whiskey.
