PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE COME TOGETHER
When you enter our distillery at 901 West Vickery – we lovingly refer to it as 901 – you may feel like you were just transported back in time. 901 was built in 1927, and it’s a clear example of the old adage, “they don’t build ‘em like this anymore.” Although we had to do a fair amount of work to bring the mechanical, electrical and plumbing up to code, it was otherwise in exceptional condition. From the original old-growth timber used for the exposed roof, columns and beams, to the old Chicago Fire Brick used to construct our 13” thick walls, every inch of the building exudes craftsmanship and attention to detail.
At F&R, we believe in preserving history – from our 1920s building and classic all-copper pot stills to our traditional 53-gallon bourbon barrels. We’re also committed to supporting our community, donating our spent grain mash to local farmers to use as a high-protein additive for cattle feed.
The rehabilitation of our building was an intensive process. When we started the work we really didn't know how it would all come together. We had an incredible general contractor from Cleburne, Robin Sanders, and he led a remarkable group of local tradesmen. We decided not to use an interior designer so Troy and Leonard had to dig deep to find their inner fung shui! In the end, the process was very organic as we just kept taking what the building gave us, which has produced an extraordinary atmosphere we now enjoy.
