Making Dallas Even Better

Photography by Kevin Marple


A love of handcrafted spirits led to the creation of North Texas-based Texas Silver Star Whiskey. Founders Mark Lusignan, Ben Alexander, and Don Alexander, along with majority investor Chad Willis, believe hard work and integrity will help make their small-batch, Texas-made whiskey a household name. Also, they blend their American oak-aged Spirit Whiskey ($34.99) with wildflower honey from Round Rock Honey to create Texas Honey liqueur ($32.99).
