A still worthy of our name

Our still was a joint design venture between master distiller Mike Delevante and the engineers at Forsyths in Rothes, Scotland. At 50 feet in height, our beloved Nancy—the "Still" in Still Austin—was the first column still of her kind in Texas. In fact, she remains the only column still in the United States to have been built by the legendary Scottish master stillmakers. The most important thing to say about her is that’s she’s very tall—that’s why we named her after the main character in the sci-fi classic "Attack of the 50-Foot Woman."

Sustainably crafted. Locally sourced. Pure spirits from the heart of Austin.

Imagine what spirits would be like if you took all the corporate nonsense out of the distilling process. If you didn’t cut corners, if you kept things in the neighborhood? If you managed every step of development, first gathering clean, pure grains from local farmers and ensuring ecologically sound distilling, then aging in a clean, pastoral rickhouse in the Texas Hill Country, reducing proof slowly over time until at last you poured that pure truth into your glass? What would that taste like? We wondered that, too. It kept us up at night. We drove our families crazy talking about it. Finally we embraced local artists, makers, and devotees, and we made it happen.

Blending Art and Science

Creating whiskey is as much ingenuity as it is exactitude. That’s why we insisted on building our distillery inside the city limits of Austin—a metropolis famed for blending art and science. But how, we asked, do we build a community around whiskey? We began working with Texas farmers, helping them turn crops; we gave back feed to cows; we built our distillery to conserve energy. We did this because it’s the right thing to do.

Come visit our distillery. Meet the farmers and the distillers. Touch the grains, feel how clean they are. It’s all here, in the open for you to see. No secrets. We’re proud of what we do, and we want you to be proud too.
