limited batch release monster mash whiskey from still austin whiskey co.

Monster Mash Whiskey

This 2020 special reserve series, aged 26 months, is a blend of just two 53-gallon whiskey barrels. We expect around a 500 bottle yield, and we’ll be announcing preorders soon. Stay tuned!

The Monster Mash comprises an unholy medley of five grain sources: white corn, winterhawk wheat, Texas rye, malted barley and malted rye. Brought to life using an ancient barrel-aging technique known as Slow-Water Reduction, the only way to defeat this diabolical bourbon is to drink it under the stars with a coven of close friends.

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.
