Located at The Yard at St. Elmo, the “urban distillery” intends to create both “classic and innovative” whiskey expressions, including Bourbon, small-batch specialty spirits, and seasonal offerings.

The Still Austin Whiskey Company team plan to mash, ferment, distill, barrel and bottle all products at the distillery using a 45-foot Bourbon still and copper pot still, with a focus on the surrounding agricultural community through the use of local grains and limestone-filtered water.

As well as constructing a tasting room, events space and dedicated whiskey garden, the distillery will provide guests with the opportunity to participate in a Distill Your Own Barrel workshop.

In addition Still Austin Whiskey Company has launched Stash, a bespoke barrel reserve programme that includes regular tastings, events and gatherings.
