Whiskey (Whisky) Tasting Notes: Featuring Acre Distilling

A favorite of the locals, Acre Distilling is a popular cocktail bar and distillery located in Hell’s Half Acre in historic downtown Fort Worth, Texas. What makes this place so special is not only its geographical location but also its status as one of the Top 9 Distillery Tasting Rooms In America according to Vinepair.com.

The distillery offers high-quality single malt whiskies, small-batch bourbons, vodkas, gins, and other spirits. You can also enjoy classic and craft cocktails, plus good food! The Acre Texas Single Malt Whisky recently won the Silver Medal at the 2019 World Spirits Competition San Francisco and is definitely one of the drinks you should try out at Acre Distilling.

A Place Where Spirits Are Made With Passion


Acre Distilling began operating in December 2015 right in the heart of the Old West’s sin and vice: the Hell's Half Acre. The distillery set out to add the rebellious and revolutionary characteristics of the Texan spirit into their products, including their bourbon, whisky, vodka, gin, rum, liqueurs, and cordials.


The distillery uses only quality ingredients that are sourced locally. The brands are produced by passionate and knowledgeable people with a keen eye for details. This has led Acre Distilling to become one of the most nationally acclaimed and award-winning distilleries in the US.

The Texas Single Malt Whiskey is 100 proof fine single malt whisky made from barley milled and malted right in Fort Worth. The processed two-row barley is then sent to Acre Distilling to be mashed. After fermentation and distillation, it is aged in charred American White Oak Barrels. This whisky won a bronze medal from the 2019 Great American International Spirits Competition.
