For the first time ever we will have Texas Distilleries fighting it out for the title of The Best Bourbon in Texas. Join us as Jim Murray, author of The Whisky Bible, taste Texas Bourbon Distilleries best products and crowns the champion on stage live! Our guest will join in on the action by tasting the entries of 10 of the Texas Distilleries as Jim Murray talks through their submission. Seating is limited for The Texas Bourbon Shootout to keep this historic moment intimate and enjoyable for everyone involved. Proceeds from the event will benefit The Longview World of Wonders, A Hands-On Discovery Center for Children.

Although all Texas Bourbon Distilleries that produce grain to glass in Texas are eligible to enter their bourbon into the 2019 Texas Bourbon Shootout, the following distilleries feel confident that their product has what it takes to be crowned THE BEST BOURBON IN TEXAS!
