    Re: Good "Makers v Fakers' Article in Dallas Observer

    Great article! Thanks for sharing. I hate watching folks pick these "Texas" spirits off the shelves and paying premium prices for nothing more than marketing BS

    The easiest way to tell is just look at the producer statement on back of the bottle. Does it say distilled by, or something else?

    No offense, but it isn't the same. People that don't live in Texas usually don't get it..but ask someone that has moved to Texas from another state. They will tell you they never understood what the big deal was until after you have lived here for a while. Winning your independence by fighting for it and then existing as your own country (and also many other thing) creates an inherit DNA that you just can't recreate elsewhere.

    Good "Makers v Fakers' Article in Dallas Observer

    My sister lived in TX for a few yrs. She didn't understand what the big deal was before and was even less certain of it after. Couldn't wait to get back home to KY!

    Re: Good "Makers v Fakers' Article in Dallas Observer

    My sister (from Texas) went to college in California and hung a big state flag in her dorm that people didn't understand. She would say to me, "Nobody here GETS it."

    Coincidentally, I became friends with a guy who moved from Cali to TX and during a commercial break of a hoops game we were watching, he observed, "Dude, the ads here are as much about the state of Texas as they are the product."

    Last one: we think it's perfectly normal to have taken a required Texas History class in middle school, but I mentioned this in passing to my wife once and she laughed. Apparently New Jersey History class was not mandatory for her.

    Winston - does this apply to any spirit? Several Vodka brands that I know are bulk GNS with water added say Distilled by XYZ Company.

    The other thing to note is "Distilled in" is treated completely different than "Distilled by" by the TTB.

    TEXAS!!!!!! Get's shoved down your throat everywhere you go. That's probably part of the reason she felt that way.
