Whitmeyer’s is the first legal distillery in Harris County. The idea of bringing up a distillery as a business started when the Whitmeyer’s brothers got deployed to Germany. Travis, the other brother, met a local girl whose family had been producing all sorts of alcohol for numerous generations; from brandies, and schnapps, to beers and wines. Both brothers went to college and chose to write a business plan for a distillery for their first business class assignment, and the rest is history.

Products they’re known for are Texas Whiskey, Straight Bourbon Barrel Selection Series, Texas Peach Whiskey, and Texas Reserve Cask Moonshine.
