1693 Distillery


Opened in 2022, 1693 Distillery can trace its roots all the way back to 1851, when the owner's third great-grandfather, Heinrich “Henry” Ochs, immigrated to Fredericksburg from Germany. Ochs quickly became one of the town’s first teachers, and later a County Clerk and founder of the Buckhorn Saloon in Fredericksburg. The saloon, which served the family’s beer and whiskey recipes, was one of the first in the area - and became a popular watering hole that can be read about in history books today. The distillery sits at 1,693 feet above surrounding cities.
