About TXWA

Our Purpose

The Texas Whiskey Association is established by a trailblazing group of whiskey makers with the common goal to promote Texas Whiskey, educate consumers and support distilleries that produce whiskey all within the territorial boundaries of the State of Texas. Together we intend to create and grow worldwide demand, appreciation and respect for whiskies made in Texas by:

  • Educating consumers about what Texas Whiskies are and are not;
  • Encouraging truth and transparency in labeling;
  • Setting certification standards that assure quality and authenticity;
  • Establishing and promoting an educational and enjoyable Texas Whiskey Trail for consumers and advocates.
