Artisan is the only downtown craft vodka distillery and lounge in San Antonio and rated one of the best craft cocktail bars around. We hand craft two vodkas, Spike Vodka & Texas Pride Vodka, and Chupacabra Juice Moonshine. Spike is the only vodka in the world made from prickly pear cactus. Due to the unique food source it is very full bodied with and earthy character. Texas Pride, on the other hand, is corn based and more neutral and rated 91 by Wine Enthusiast Magazine. Chupacabra Juice Moonshine is also corn based and not as forward as most moonshines.
In out tasting room we have an extensive craft cocktail menu that uses our spirits.
During our tour we take you through the process of distilling, fermenting, and even bottling and we sample the vodka at the end of the tour. Tours last 40min to 55min depending on the size of the group and questions.
We had a group of 10, fun for all. I would definitely go back for the happy hour drink menu. Tour was very informative.
Had a fantastic tour with the master distiller, Nick, who is obviously very passionate about his work. He and his staff made us feel as if we were visiting friends instead of touring a distillery, giving us pointers on things to see and do while we were visiting San Antonio. Great atmosphere, awesome staff, and fantastic cocktails!
Gave it as a gift to my daughter. But they did not get the two souvenir glasses that were advertised. But they really enjoyed it.
Went for a tasting a tour staff was friendly and knowledgeable, also made great drinks. Owner Nick was great funny and energetic, fun guy. I was impressed he made almost everything in the bar/distillery by hand.
Being that I never drank Vodka or Bourbon straight, I was pleased to say that all 3 of the spirits we tasted went down smooth.
I would recommend to anyone to give the distillery a tour or just for a evening drink with friends.
The tour was awesome and Nick was a blooming onion of knowledge! I will be coming back sooner than later.
Great drinks! The owner was a pleasure to meet!
We had a great time, Nick is so personable, the crowd we was lively. I brought my family from Connecticut, they enjoyed themselves, brought 2 bottles of vodka. Thanks for souvenir glasses
The drinks are amazing!! Nicholas is truly a master artist when it comes to drinks! (No food available because that’s not what they serve, but opentable required an answer.)
Great vodka and great tour! Will absolutely return for cocktails and happy hour!
Didn’t want to put down poor for food. There is no food. A food truck outside would have been perfect.
Very informative tour. Nick is an awesome guy. Would definitely recommend.
Exceptional and very educational tour featuring uniquely TX prickly pear vodka
Such a great experience to be able to tour the distillary and great cocktails!
Visited on sept 1st. Great drinks! Probably one of the best happy hours I’ve been to. Lady bartender was rude though. Needs to work on customer service if she wants tips.
