Rebecca Creek Distillery is considered one of the finest in San Antonio, and now it ranks No. 1 in the state. The 2017 "Official Best Of" television program has named it the top craft distillery in Texas.

The annual awards are determined by a group of "Official Best Of" researchers that "scour print and online travel resources [and] consult with local convention and visitors bureaus, chambers of commerce, and other experts in the field."

Rebecca Creek Distillery and the other Texas winners will be showcased on individual TV segments airing this summer across ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, and the Discovery Channel. Filming at the distillery will take place April 12.

"Texas has become one of the most competitive states for craft spirits with many notable distilleries, so being awarded the 'Best Of' in this category is a true testament to how hard our team has worked in the past eight years to make the distillery exceptional," says Steve Ison, founder and CEO of Rebecca Creek Distillery, in a release.

Rebecca Creek debuted in 2009 and is now one of the largest craft distilleries in the country. The current lineup includes Fine Texas Spirit Whiskey, Texas Ranger Whiskey, and Enchanted Rock Vodka in original and peach flavors.
