Shortly About Us

Welcome

The only downtown vodka and whiskey distillery and craft cocktail lounge in San Antonio.

Artisan on Alamo Distillery is the only distillery in downtown San Antonio that hand crafts all their spirits.  At Artisan Distillery we create Spike Vodka, Texas Pride Vodka Chupacabra Juice Moonshine, Bexar Ridge Bourbon Whisky, and Pecan Ridge Whiskey.  In addition to producing our spirits on site we have a great tasting room lounge where we offer unique cocktails and educate people about our craft spirits. 

Spike Vodka was our first spirit we created,  Spike Vodka is one of the most unique vodkas – it is the only vodka in the world that is made from prickly pear cactus. This unique vodka is like no other vodka you will ever have.  Some describe it as earthy with a sweet pepper finish and has no back burn or bite.  Spike Vodka has been featured on Texas Country Reporter (video) and many morning shows here in San Antonio. 

Texas Pride Vodka is a corn based vodka is ultra-smooth, rated a 91 by Wine Enthusiast Magazine, and is never a disappointment.  Texas Pride is a more traditional vodka and appreciated by all in every situation.

In 2016 we decided to expand our portfolio and created Chupacabra Juice Moonshine.  This moonshine is corn based, and comes from an old family recipe. Chupacabra Juice Moonshine is distilled to 65%, then diluted to 40% before it is served.  We do not infuse, flavor or age our moonshine because we want to enjoy the true character of this spirit. Even though it is moonshine, it is smoother than most commercial vodka.

Due to customer requests we have expanded our list of spirits once again, we are now creating Bexar Ridge Bourbon Whisky and Pecan Ridge Whiskey. Bexar Ridge Bourbon is the perfect combination of corn, wheat, and rye.. creating  a great, well balanced mash.  After fermentation and distilling Bexar Ridge we age it in virgin oak barrels for six months.  Bexar Ridge is a great bourbon to mix or just straight. You will find Bexar Ridge Bourbon is earthy without being overbearing and is so smooth it can be enjoyed straight or a smooth crafted cocktail.  Pecan Ridge Whiskey is another perfect blend of corn, wheat, and barley that is aged and distilled by hand to perfection. What makes Pecan Ridge very unique is that it is aged 20 months and during the aging process Texas native pecan wood and Teas soft shelled pecan are put in the charred oak barrel giving Pecan Ridge a nutty note with a dry undertone (due to the real nuts that are used).

Alongside our production area Artisan Distillery has a craft cocktail lounge where you can enjoy hand crafted cocktails that feature our hand crated spirits.  We also offer tours most Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 4pm and 7pm (reservations). 

Artisan Distillery has a great atmosphere like no other bar or lounge.  Relaxing and fun Artisan is a great place to meet friends and spend the evening having a great time.
