Whiskey – The Rebecca Creek Way

Recently I had the privilege of being invited out to the Rebecca Creek Distillery housed in beautiful San Antonio, TX. While I knew Rebecca Creek was Texas Whiskey at its best, I had no idea it was truly home grown and boy was I blown away.

I had previously been introduced to Rebecca Creek by my friend from Hawaii, yes Hawaii. That’s all she drinks and subsequently all I drink when I feel like a nice whiskey based cocktail. So they already had a fan, but once I toured the distillery, I became an even bigger fan.

As soon as we arrived we were treated to a specialty, watermelon, Enchanted Rock vodka concoction created for us by their super fab bartender Elena. Yes, Rebecca Creek Distillery is also responsible for bringing us Enchanted Rock Ultra-Premium Vodka and Enchanted Rock Peach Flavored Vodka.

Then we were warmly greeted by Russell Silverman, VP of Rebecca Creek Distillery. He gave us the background on Rebecca Creek and then walked us through a personalized tour of the distillery.

Of note are:

  • This is South Texas’ first legal distillery since Prohibition.
  • They use limestone-filtered water from the Texas Trinity Aquifer, and have a recycled water system that saves 90% of the water.
  • Enchanted Rock Vodka is distilled six times and then frost-filtered at 28 degrees to remove any remaining impurities, giving the final product a smooth, clean taste with a medium body and sweet finish.
  • Rebecca Creek Single Malt whiskey is made using copper stills – used in traditional distilling techniques – which offer higher quality, with a sweeter taste.  It’s also the first whiskey to be named after a woman.

And if that weren’t enough, they’ve also created Rebecca Creek Radio to provide Texas artists and musicians with a place to share their music (like the Josh Abbott Band highlighted below, Kyle Park, Bri Bagwell and Mario Flores, just to name a few)

Needless to say I’m thoroughly impressed with Rebecca Creek’s commitment to showcasing the best Texas has to offer, including this strawberry, lime, jalapeño, Rebecca Creek concoction whipped up by their bartender Elena after our tour.  After which we were also provided a sample of their newest Rebecca Creek whiskey which smells like chocolate, but packs a Texas sized punch.   It’s slated to come out this September.

And the best part is that it’s made in my home town of San Antonio, TX!  If you’re ever in the area, I invite you to take a free tour of the distillery (Fridays 4pm -7 pm and Saturdays 12 pm – 5 pm), sample their spirits, shop and maybe even stay awhile to enjoy the grounds.  I promise, you won’t be disappointed.

    Oh my gosh!– apple martinis! Did I ever make you one Rosie? Absolutely delish! Also love electric lemonade and sea breeze vodka drinks. It’ll be a good while before I can have one again. 🙁

    1. Awe, but you’re cooking up greatness in the meantime 😉

      And yes, that apple martini was the best I’ve ever had, haven’t had once since you were in town I think. And I haven’t had an electric lemonade in forever too, thanks for reminding me. 😀

  3. This is so cool! I think I’m going to have to secretly plan a trip here, as a surprise for my husband. It looks like you had a lot of fun too!

    1. It is a blast Missy…so much info on the brewing process etc. , plus getting to sample, while kicking back makes it extra special. Hope you get a chance to make it out!
