What it means to live the "Still Life"
At Still Austin, we make our spirit intentionally. That means it's hand-crafted, made from grain to glass, with a focus on quality. We do everything from sourcing our grains to facilitating distillation, from crafting the bottles to designing our own specialty cocktails. From start to finish, a great deal of time and effort goes into every bottle of Still Austin. We call this love for process and craft “living the Still Life.” That commitment to the creative process is something Still Austin holds dear, and we recognize that same love of process in our community.
In this episode, you’ll hear owner Kathie Sever, head tailor Rebekah DuBose and designer Amrit Khalsa talk about the chain-stitching process, what goes into designing and crafting a Ft Lonesome custom garment, and why rhinestones really need to make a comeback. Then watch them whip up their beautifully detailed, handmade fabric labels for our Four Grain Bourbon Whiskey release!
