About Us

Our Roots

    Llano Craft Distillery was born in 2016 as the brainchild of Distiller and owner Marion Bishop. The idea began with joking about “what I want to do when I grow up,” and grew into a bit of a vision. Along with his wife Connie Bishop and daughter Danielle Carmichael, he created a family-owned and operated business that set out to achieve two goals.

    The first was to create superior and unique spirits. A great spirit should be enjoyable right out of the bottle, as well as when mixed. And we feel we have done our job well in that regard if we do say so ourselves. We also feel confident that our efforts have resulted in a range of flavors truly unique in the industry.

    The second goal was to create and contribute to a sense of community by developing a great space for locals and visitors alike. From the intimate size and unique décor, to the original and varied craft cocktail menu, our tasting room brings something fresh yet timeless…and all Texas to Llano and the Texas Hill Country.

    We feel blessed to have been embraced by the community of Llano in our first year of operation. And as we spend our next year expanding our market horizons, we will always strive to stay true to our roots in the Llano community and to maintain the one-of-a-kind feel of the Texas Hill Country.
