Prior to 1920 whiskey was a regional specialty, crafted by local distilleries located in cities across America. Prohibition brought this to a halt. This was followed by the consolidation of distilleries, and recovery has taken almost 100 years.
One evening in 2013, a group of Austin friends sketched out an idea to build the first whiskey distillery located inside Austin's city limits since Prohibition. It was a crazy thing to do, but here we are: In 2016, the dream is reality.
Still Austin Whiskey Co. is a community of whiskey adventurers working hard to make whiskey once again a regional specialty. We hope you’ll join us.
Made in Austin.
The decision to be a “Grain-to-Glass” distillery was driven by a desire to be as authentic as the city we call home. Whiskey takes time, and that’s part of its appeal. Focusing on details like local grains, limestone-filtered water, and the hot Texas climate helps us deliver something unique to Austin. Look for classic and innovative whiskey expressions as well as bourbon, small batch specialty spirits, and seasonal offerings.
In 2016 (date TBA), Still Austin will swing open its doors to provide tastings, tours and a truly unique event venue. Come fold out a lawn chair and kick back with friends.
