Straight Bourbon: "The Musician" - Still Austin Whiskey Co.

“The Musician”

Straight Bourbon Whiskey

When a musician combines chords, rhythms, and harmonies, the result taps into something deep inside us.

Music has the ability to bring us all closer together—to make us feel more free and alive. So does great whiskey.

This is more than just distilled corn, rye, and barley. This is music in a bottle.

Tasting Notes

  • Nose Pineapple, toasted coconut, s'mores
  • Palate Cinnamon, brown butter, almonds
  • Finish Tropical fruit, toffee, baking spices
  • ABV / Proof 49.2 % /98.4

Mash bill

  • 70% white corn

  • 25% Rye

  • 5% Malted barley

  • 100% Texas

The sweetness of chef-grade white corn—the same kind used in Austin’s famous tortillas—complements the spiciness of our high-rye mash bill.

  • “I'm hooked on the spice from the rye, alongside the hints of brown sugar, caramel, and toffee. The smooth, lasting lingering finish is bliss.”

    -Gabby Pharms, UPROXX

  • “A healthy bit of caramel with some vanilla in the background. But that's not what makes this interesting...”

    -Nick Leghorn, Thirty-One Whiskey

  • “You know that pink bunny in the battery commercials? The finish on this just kept going and going and going.”

    -Jeff Schwartz a/k/a The Whiskeyfellow

  • “A Clint Eastwood/John Wayne western film in a glass.”

    -Matt Zitrick, Whiskey Crusaders

No one said making whiskey was easy. But we decided to make it about as difficult as possible, because dammit, we like a challenge.

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.
