The ingredients of this uniquely American family story are familiar — a young man leaves an old country in hopes of finding freedom and a better life in the New World. He nurtures future generations to love their country and fight for causes they believe in. One intrepid descendant builds a business close to the flow of a great river of commerce in late 19th-century America, and creates a tradition that combines strong values with exceptional whiskies that has been rediscovered and continues to this day.
Lone Elm Texas Wheat Whiskey and Wheat Vodka are both handcrafted on site in our Forney, Texas plant. Historically the area was settled in 1847 and named Union Hill; later the area became known as as Lone Elm. At Five Points Distilling our Lone Elm Brand pays homage to the pioneering spirit of those early settlers. Our privately-owned craft distillery is located on 10 acres at 8575 Union Hill Road. This delightfully scenic area surrounded by small farms, small lakes, and ranches is convenient to the Dallas metro area. Founded by five partners, our facility was designed and built from the ground up for production of wheat spirits. With our American-made, 500-gallon copper pot still and 26-foot-tall stainless vodka column, our processes are specifically designed to coax out and enhance the unique tasting notes and qualities that only a wheat-based spirit and skilled distiller can deliver.
