Distillery Reserve Series: Sherry Cask-Finished Rye Whiskey

Our master blender Nancy Fraley has said that last year’s sherry-aged bourbon and our not-yet-released Rye 100 are her favorite Still Austin spirits—so we combined the two. This extremely limited Distillery Reserve Series release—made from 100% rye grains, finished in Pedro Ximénez sherry casks, and aged at least two years—represents a true expression of the distiller’s art. And like the spirits inside, the bottles themselves are works of creative expression.

This limited batch release goes on sale to the public at noon on Saturday, December 12th, at our distillery.

Rachel Dickson: The Artist Behind the Label

Austin-based artist Rachel Dickson has been honing her artistic skills for the past decade. After the death of her brother in 2014 and then of her son's biological mom in 2015, she used art as a form of therapy to deal with anger and heartache. She decided to pursue painting as a full-time career in 2018. She uses art as a therapy, and her work showcases the vast mix of emotions that encompass grief. She specializes in watercolors and frequently uses acrylic and collage. The female form is prevalent in her work, and her use of color and white space are the foundation of each piece.
