Witherspoon Distillery, a Texas-based manufacturer of premium handcrafted spirits including Witherspoon Texas Straight Bourbon, Witherspoon’s River Rum, Bonfire and Witherspoon Single Malt Whiskey, is celebrating its relocation to the heart of Old Town Lewisville with a grand opening event on Saturday, October 24 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at 225 S Charles Street.
The new space, which will host event attendees, includes a 5,000 square foot state-of-the-art production facility, 5,000 square foot rick house for barrel aging, 4,000 square foot air conditioned bar and tasting area, and a 4,000 square foot outdoor garden, most of which is available for private event rentals.
“We are thrilled to present our new facility to the public, and to celebrate it’s opening with members of the DFW community,” said Quentin Witherspoon, founder and master distiller. “Creating high quality, handcrafted spirits is our passion, and we are honored to have the opportunity to share our products with Texas consumers, one sip at a time.”
The grand opening celebration will be free and open to the public. Guests are invited to enjoy food trucks from Best Bayou Bites, Wayne’s Flame, Yim Yam, Kieron Go Braugh, Nate’s 125th Café and Jimboy’s Tacos, a bottle engraver, innovative and custom cocktails, and guided mini tours of the facility on the hour from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Those 21 and over will be able to sample Witherspoon’s handcrafted spirits, which include Bonfire, an all-natural cinnamon infused rum; Texas Straight Bourbon, smooth and rich in American flavor and sweet to taste; Witherspoon’s River Rum, an award-winning recipe with hints of vanilla and butterscotch; and Single Malt, which showcases subtle and delicate flavors and aromas found exclusively in this limited-release spirit.
Additionally, guests will be able to enter a drawing to win prizes including bottles, gift baskets, tours, and branded merchandise.
Witherspoon’s handcrafted spirits are available in more than 250 retailers throughout Texas.
