GET A PIECE OF TEXAS TAIL DISTILLERY BY TEXAS TAIL HOLDINGS, INC.
Texas Tail Distillery crafts unique, hand-made spirits capturing the essence of the Lone Star State, where quality, exceptional ingredients, and dedication define every drop.
We source the finest locally-grown ingredients to craft our spirits, capturing Texas in every bottle, while supporting local agriculture and minimizing our environmental impact.
The craft distilling market was valued at approximately $22B globally in 2022 and we plan on tapping into the market demand by delivering an exceptional quality product.*
Our visionary owners, recipients of three "Texas Vodka Distillery of the Year" awards, bring 25+ years of extensive expertise in business acquisitions and sales, coupled with a genuine passion for crafting excellence.
Founded in 2010 by two friends who shared a love for good spirits and the Texas wilderness. Inspired by the great outdoors and the pursuit of crafting something truly unique, we set out to create hand-crafted spirits that capture the essence of Texas. From those humble beginnings, Texas Tail Distillery has grown into a passionate endeavor specializing in whiskey, vodka, and an array of delightful liquors.
What really sets us apart is our commitment to quality. We meticulously source our raw materials from Texas distributors, supporting local agriculture and reducing our environmental footprint. We produce only a handful of bottles per batch, allowing us to manipulate the process to create some of the most desirable and flavorful spirits. It's this dedication that has earned us a loyal following and a reputation for excellence.
Texas Tail Distillery aims to seize a remarkable opportunity in the spirits industry by tapping into the authentic flavors and unique climate of the Texas Gulf Coast. Our mission is simple: to craft the finest distilled spirits in the world, all while showcasing the richness of our Texan heritage. We believe that what makes a great vodka is its purity, so every bottle of Texas vodka is primarily corn-based ethanol from Texas farms. We take pride in producing small-batch whiskey and vodka that we believe are second to none.
Our process revolves around sourcing the finest ingredients, distilling them into pure Texas spirits, and delivering our products to enthusiasts worldwide. We believe the Texas climate lends a special touch to our bourbon, while our innovative mellowing process consistently leads to high demand and previous sellouts of our limited release bourbons. On the other hand, our vodka stands out just as well with its 50/50 blend of corn and wheat and an exceptional filtering process, earning us top ratings in major spirit competitions, surpassing some well-known brands.
The Market & Our Traction
We believe Texas Tail Distillery is positioned to thrive in the ever-growing craft distilling market, valued at approximately $20 billion globally (Source). This sector caters to discerning consumers who seek authenticity, local sourcing, and artisanal craftsmanship in their spirits. Our impressive traction speaks volumes: we anticipate tripling our revenue by the end of this year, driven by steady market demand and exceptional product quality. We’ve successfully reached a diverse and expanding customer base thanks to distribution partnerships spanning across 700+ liquor stores and online platforms, therefore enabling shipping to 43 states.
With a collective distilling experience exceeding 25 years, our leadership team possesses a depth of expertise. Our owners, distinguished recipients of three "Texas Vodka Distillery of the Year" awards, bring not only a wealth of knowledge in business acquisitions and sales, but also a passion for craft excellence. Meanwhile, our dynamic Sales Manager achieved the impressive feat of doubling sales in just 9 months, while our General Manager's two decades of experience in fine dining and operations have catapulted us to the pinnacle of Galveston's culinary scene. These accolades, including "Double Gold" and "Texas Vodka Distillery of the Year," serve as resounding endorsements of our commitment to excellence in craft distilling.
We believe the opportunities within the craft distilling landscape are limitless, and Texas Tail Distillery stands ready to grasp them. We take pride in honoring Texas heritage and embracing the distinctive climate that molds our bourbon, coupled with our innovative techniques inspired by the wine industry. Our ambitious plans include expanding our bourbon production, venturing into new markets across 43 states, and bringing our popular canned cocktails to a broader audience.

*In order to receive perks from an investment, one must submit a single investment in the same offering that meets the minimum perk requirement. Bonus shares from perks will not be granted if an investor submits multiple investments that, when combined, meet the perk requirement. All perks occur when the offering is completed.
Crowdfunding investments made through a self-directed IRA cannot receive non-bonus share perks due to tax laws. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) prohibits self-dealing transactions in which the investor receives an immediate, personal financial gain on investments owned by their retirement account. As a result, an investor must refuse those non-bonus share perks because they would be receiving a benefit from their IRA account.
Please be advised that some of the perks and incentives listed above may not be available to certain investors due to state-specific rules and regulations related to alcohol distribution and consumption. The availability of these benefits may vary based on your location and the legal restrictions governing such activities. We recommend that you carefully review your local laws and regulations before considering any investment in relation to the mentioned tiers and associated incentives.
Texas Tail Holdings, Inc. will offer 10% additional bonus shares for all investments that are committed by investors that are eligible for the StartEngine Crowdfunding Inc. OWNer's bonus.
This means eligible StartEngine shareholders will receive a 10% bonus for any shares they purchase in this offering. For example, if you buy 100 shares of Common Stock at $5.00 / share, you will receive 110 shares of Common Stock, meaning you'll own 110 shares for $500. Fractional shares will not be distributed and share bonuses will be determined by rounding down to the nearest whole share.
This 10% Bonus is only valid during the investors eligibility period. Investors eligible for this bonus will also have priority if they are on a waitlist to invest and the company surpasses its maximum funding goal. They will have the first opportunity to invest should room in the offering become available if prior investments are canceled or fail.
Investors will receive the highest single bonus they are eligible for among the bonuses based on the amount invested and time of offering elapsed (if any). Eligible investors will also receive the Owner’s Bonus in addition to the aforementioned bonus.

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.
With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.
At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.
Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.
StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.
For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.
For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.
Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.
Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.
Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
