Matagorda Bay Distillery blueprints as of October

Blueprints, which are current as of October, show plans to build a distillery in Matagorda County. The new distillery will be located along SH 60 near Wadsworth.

On 45 acres where a distillery may have once stood, retired Col. Stephen Mitchell and his business partner Rick Elliott are opening Matagorda Bay Distillery between Bay City and the Texas coast.

The project is still in the planning phase, but they plan to break ground at 13354 SH 60 in Wadsworth in January and open in June. With rum, brandy, canned cocktails and a place to try out the spirits, the distillery will be the only one between Houston and Victoria, they said.
