Special guest in attendance - Tom Nall, Master Distiller and owner of Republic Tequila. (Bio on website)


All Tom Nall ever wanted to be was a cowboy. Along the way, he spent over three decades building the now legendary brand Wick Fowler’s Two Alarm Chili Kits, which are sold nationwide. He retired from the chili business on a Friday in 2009 and by Monday had started a new venture. Tom and his partners set out to create a tequila that would represent the spirit of Texas, and that folks all over would be proud to drink and serve. Tom’s dedication to all things Texan and experience as a cowboy cook gave him the know how to create Republic Tequila, a product that honors the traditions and taste buds of generations of Texans. In 2017, Tom pioneered a new spirit- Republic Whiskey, a bourbon blend as bold and storied as Texas itself.
