limited batch release bourbon whiskey produced by still austin whiskey co in austin texas

High Rye Bourbon Whiskey

On October 7th, we unveiled another limited-batch release of our celebrated High Rye Bourbon. To craft our Bourbon Whiskey, we incorporated the Abruzzi and Brassetto rye varieties, along with Elbon rye. To infuse the spirits with a sense of home, we distill with the same white corn you’ll find in Austin’s tortillas. And, to protect these flavors, we do everything in-house. The result? A friendly bourbon. A confident bourbon. A bourbon with creativity and integrity.

This is true bourbon whiskey, made the Austin way.

Mash bill

70% Non-GMO white corn, 25% rye and 5% malted barley.

Tasting notes

From our Master Blender, Nancy Fraley: “Delightfully sweet aromas shine through on the initial nose, followed by waves of browned butter with baking spices such as cinnamon, allspice, and clove. The alcohol is soft and round on the palate, with a surprisingly long finish, depth, and finesse.”

How Still Austin Makes Bourbon Whiskey

We “raise” our barrels from birth to maturity, using a labor-intensive philosophy known as élevage, which weds the bourbon to our local climate while maintaining the spirit’s connection to its original grains. Focusing on flavor and balance, the meticulous practice of élevage uses a slow-water reduction technique to extract flavors from charred oak. While the barrels endure the wild swings of Texas weather, we add a little water each month to bring more "mature" notes, like vanilla and caramel to the forefront.

Where to find our Bourbon

As of now, due to the meticulous process required to distill and mature our Bourbon, our October limited-batch release will only be available in our tasting room and at a very few select stores, bars and restaurants throughout the Austin area. Don't worry, we have plans to launch nationally—because why should the rest of the country be locked out of heaven?
