Cask Strength Bourbon Whiskey - Still Austin Whiskey Co.

Cask Strength Bourbon Whiskey

This deeper, more “metal” version of our beloved Straight Bourbon is made from a select blend of choice barrels, and bottled at a grow-hair-on-your-chest 118 proof.

In an act of masterful artistry, our distillers were able to combine power and subtlety into one gorgeous spirit.

Because of the demand for this magnificent juice we’ve decided to make it available year-round.

That means we went all the way to Scotland and asked the world's best stillmaker to build us a 42-foot column still. It means we promised never to use any grains grown outside the state of Texas, no matter how rare or obscure those grains might be.

And it means we embrace an inclusive and imaginative worldview: Whiskey for the artists, the outsiders, and the ne'er-do-wells. Long live bourbon.

Marc Burckhardt

The Artist Behind the Label

To create a darker mood for this more robust version of our flagship whiskey, we turned once again to the label artist for the Straight Bourbon. World-renowned artist (and Austinite) Marc Burckhardt helped us craft a nighttime scene featuring our beloved Musician, with a starry night sky that reflects the mysterious nature of the spirit inside the bottle.
