A STILL WORTHY OF OUR NAME
Our still was a joint design venture between master distiller Mike Delevante and the engineers at Forsyths in Rothes, Scotland. At 42 feet in height, our beloved Nancy—the "Still" in Still Austin—was the first column still of her kind in Texas. In fact, she remains the only column still in the United States to have been built by the legendary Scottish master stillmakers. The most important thing to say about her is that’s she’s very tall—that’s why we named her after the main character in the sci-fi classic "Attack of the 50-Foot Woman."
SUSTAINABLY CRAFTED. LOCALLY SOURCED. PURE SPIRITS FROM THE HEART OF AUSTIN.
Imagine what spirits would be like if you took all the corporate nonsense out of the distilling process. If you didn’t cut corners, if you kept things in the neighborhood? If you managed every step of development, first gathering clean, pure grains from local farmers and ensuring ecologically sound distilling, then aging in a clean, pastoral rickhouse in the Texas Hill Country, reducing proof slowly over time until at last you poured that pure truth into your glass? What would that taste like? We wondered that, too. It kept us up at night. We drove our families crazy talking about it. Finally we embraced local artists, makers, and devotees, and we made it happen.
BLENDING ART AND SCIENCE
Creating whiskey is as much ingenuity as it is exactitude. That’s why we insisted on building our distillery inside the city limits of Austin—a metropolis famed for blending art and science. But how, we asked, do we build a community around whiskey? We began working with Texas farmers, helping them turn crops; we gave back feed to cows; we built our distillery to conserve energy. We did this because it’s the right thing to do.
Come visit our distillery. Meet the farmers and the distillers. Touch the grains, feel how clean they are. It’s all here, in the open for you to see. No secrets. We’re proud of what we do, and we want you to be proud too.
HOW WE MAKE OUR BOURBON
We “raise” our barrels from birth to maturity using a labor-intensive philosophy known as slow-water reduction, which weds the bourbon to our local climate while maintaining the spirit’s connection to its original grains. Focusing on flavor and balance, the slow-water reduction technique extracts flavors from charred oak: while the barrels endure the wild swings of Texas weather, we add a little water each month to bring out more "mature" notes like vanilla and caramel.
STRAIGHT BOURBON WHISKEY: "THE MUSICIAN"
After years of hard work and dreaming and more hard work and more dreaming, we’ve finally released our baby into the world—our flagship spirit, which we’ve been perfecting for years. Our new Straight Bourbon, affectionately known as “The Musician”, is made from 100% Texas-grown corn, rye and malted barley. It’s the distillation of all we are, and of all that has created us—an expression of true Texas terroir. Like our home city, this bourbon is inclusive and original. It took a combination of Southside pluck, oak-aged patience, slow-water reduction, and good old-fashioned ingenuity to bring this spirit to life—along with the help of one very special 42-foot tall woman, “Nancy,” our one-of-a-kind Scottish-made still. For us, this whiskey represents so much that is good in this world. It’s inspiration and togetherness, community and creativity. But most of all, it’s delicious.
