To see the largest still (an apparatus that’s used to distill alcoholic mixtures) west of the Mississippi—and sample some fantastic whiskey and bourbon—check out Whiskey Ranch in Fort Worth, home to Firestone & Robertson Distilling Co. The distillery produces TX Whiskey and TX Bourbon at the facility, and small group tours are available to give an inside look into how the liquors are made and bottled. Whiskey Ranch is a gorgeous place to spend the afternoon, as it sits on an 18-hole golf course and has views of downtown Fort Worth, a large fire pit with outdoor seating, and plenty of room to spread out. Smooth whiskey cocktails are served at the bar, and a back patio behind the bar offers a deck with seating and cornhole. For a souvenir, the gift shop offers take-home goodies like apparel, insulated mugs, stickers, and, obviously, whiskey and bourbon. It’s best to check the website to see when tours are scheduled.
