Railean Distillery & Buccaneer Craft Cocktail Bar setting new home bartenders up for self-distancing success

“It’s the new thing, it’s all the rage – Be your own bartender at home, just pick a cocktail off our list & we will set you up with everything you need.”
- American Liquor Pioneer & Master Distiller Kelly Railean of Railean Distillery  

Founded in 2006, the Railean Distillery was the first legal rum distillery in Texas and has since expanded the portfolio with the manufacturing of Vodka, Agave Spirits (Tequila) and Whiskey in addition to 7 different Rum offerings. After aggressive lobbying in Austin, Railean won the ability to sell spirits in bottles and cocktails at their facility. As a result, The Railean Distillery opened their tasting room, The Buccaneer Craft Cocktail Bar, to the public in 2013 offering +100 Craft Cocktails, Flights, Rocks, Shots, live music, tours, events and more. 

While The Buccaneer Craft Cocktail Bar is unfortunately temporarily closed, the staff at Railean is setting you up for self-distancing success as your own bartendar at home. Just pick a craft cocktail from Railean’s impressive list  (https://www.railean.com/cocktails/) and they will set you up with everything you need including mixers, juices, sodas, ice and snacks to pair with your Railean Spirits. Pictured are a few examples. 

During this self-distancing stretch, the distillery is open from noon to 5pm Tuesday through Saturday for TO-GO sales. But call ahead (713-545-2742) as this situation is obviously fluid.
