The whiskeys in the seasonal series are intended to capture the ingredients, flavors and themes of the seasons from which they were inspired, according to Still Austin’s website.
Marc Burckhardt, the painter who designs all of Still Austin’s labels, came up with images designed to capture the mood of each season.
What does Bottled in Bond Mean?
The Bottled in Bond Act of 1897 was established to provide consumers a guarantee of quality and authenticity when it comes to their whiskey.
If a whiskey is designated “Bottled in Bond,” that means it is guaranteed to have been aged for a minimum of four years in oak barrels in a federally bonded warehouse and bottled at exactly 100 proof.
