Balcones Distilling

One of the most decorated craft distilleries in the world, Balcones makes its whiskey 100-percent grain-to-glass right here in Texas.

This is the perfect gift for any Texan.

Jon Hart Shop @ TheBiz

The Burleson Bag makes a great holiday gift. It’s roomy, great to carry on, and can be monogrammed. Available at the Jon Hart Shop @ TheBiz.

44 Farms smoked tenderloin

Lean and juicy with a deep, smoky flavor, the hand-trimmed 44 Farms USDA Choice or higher Black Angus smoked tenderloin will provide the savory flavor and texture that all will enjoy at gatherings or special occasions. So tender it can be cut with a fork, this filet is sure to be the highlight of any festive meal.

Tom & Sheri's Iron in a Bottle
