Firestone & Robertson Distillery

Fort Worth

Texas' first craft whiskey distillery is a true delight, established in a 1927 warehouse and using many reclaimed antique materials as furnishings (the tasting room is in the old fire safe, for example). Owners Leonard and Troy have won awards for their blended whiskey and they offer a hands-on tour of the distillery. Book in advance.
