Lockwood Distilling Co. is now open in downtown McKinney.

A grand opening celebration for the location was held during the second week in May, with a ribbon cutting event taking place May 9.

The details

The business, owned by Evan and Sally Batt, is a full-service distillery and restaurant.

The McKinney location offers menu items including shareable plates, soups, salads, sandwiches and more, Evan Batt said.

Spirits sold by the business, including whiskey, gin, vodka and rum, are distilled in-house and are used to create a variety of cocktails, according to the business’s website. The restaurant also offers to-go cocktails, food and bottles of distilled spirits through a streetside walk-up window.

Diving deeper

The nearly 3,000-square-foot McKinney restaurant is the third location for the business, with the first location having opened in Richardson in October 2019, Evan Batt said. The second Lockwood Distilling Co. location opened in Fort Worth in November 2022.

“We are thrilled to bring our taste of community, creative cuisine and craft spirits to downtown McKinney,” Evan Batt said in a news release. “While McKinney continues to grow, we love its small-town feel and feel everyone who comes through our doors will be right at home with Lockwood Distilling Co.”
