An Austin-based distillery is bringing its sustainable high-rye bourbon whiskey to Dallas for the first time this month.

Still Austin Whiskey Co. will debut its bourbon in the neighborhood with tastings, educational demonstrations and unique specialty cocktails.

The drink, crafted from Texas-grown corn, rye and barley sourced from Texas farmers, is smooth on the palate with hints of vanilla and caramel.

The spirits are made sustainably with a focus on cutting carbon emissions through local sourcing, energy-efficient equipment and water conservation. Spent grains are also returned to local ranchers to feed their animals.
