Tony Gonzales, chief marketing officer of Treaty Oak Distilling, said the Dripping Springs-based distillery is planning to expand onto a second Texas Hill Country property in 2021, where it will distill its gin product line, Waterloo Gin.

Although a location has not been finalized yet, Gonzales said Treaty Oak would move its gin production to the site, which would also have a tasting room similar to the one currently at Treaty Oak Ranch, located 16604 Fitzhugh Road, Dripping Springs.

“Our new space is going to be a home for Waterloo Gin,” he said. “We still don’t have signed contracts, but we’re close. It’ll be Hill Country-located and not far from where we are now.”

Currently, Treaty Oak Distilling offers three Waterloo Gin varieties. However, with the successful launch of the distillery’s bottled, ready-to-drink Old Fashioned cocktail earlier this year, Gonzales said the team is working to introduce new gin products, including a low-calorie, canned gin spritzer near the end of 2020 or in early 2021.

“Those are things we hope to see come to fruition in 2021,” he said. “We're looking to just keep driving like we did this year and keep growing.”


Production of Treaty Oak’s Ghost Hill Bourbon would stay at The Ranch, as would Alice’s Restaurant, which serves barbecue at the property. www.waterloogin.com. www.treatyoakdistilling.com
