At MKT Distillery, you will be able to sit under the historic Katy Rice Silos while enjoying some locally crafted spirits. MKT is the first distillery in “old town Katy”, and are proudly located in the heart of Katy in the well-known rice silos.
You’ll have the chance to experience their first Certified Texas Whiskey, the Engineer’s Texas Corn Whiskey. It is an all corn whiskey sourced from local Texas farmers. This whiskey was produced in collaboration with another local and proud member of the Texas Whiskey Association and aged in locally sourced used Bourbon Whiskey barrels. It is then proofed down with local Katy, Texas water. The combination of the corn whiskey aging in used bourbon barrels gives it a flavor profile that is smooth and mellow, similar to Scotch whiskeys and Irish whiskeys that are also aged in used bourbon barrels. This process of putting locally sourced corn whiskey in locally sourced used Bourbon barrels and proofing it with Katy, Texas water gives it a very unique flavor profile that can only be found at MKT Distillery.
