    The fourth and final seasonal bottled-in-bond bourbon from Still Austin is a Straight Rye Whiskey. It's made with 100% Texas-grown rye — the same mash bill recipe as the brand's The Artist Straight Rye.

Barrels were selected by Head Distiller John Schrepel and Master Blender Nancy Fraley. Available for purchase online and at select retail locations in March 2024. (SRP $79.99)

    Brugal Maestro Reserva is a permanent addition to the brand's portfolio. Crafted by fifth generation Maestra Ronera Jassil Villanueva Quintana, the rum is made using a proprietary "dark aromatic toasting" technique. After first aging in American oak sherry casks, the rum is dumped and set aside. Next, the barrels are toasted before being refilled with the rum and further aged. Available in the US in Florida, Texas, and New Jersey as well as duty-free at select US airports beginning February 2024 expanding to other select markets later in the year. (SRP $200)

    This is the 2023 edition of the brand's Legacy Series, and this one honors famed surfer Greg Noll. It is composed of rums from the Caribbean and South America that were blended in a combination of ex-bourbon and oloroso sherry casks. Then the rum had an additional finish in once-used French Limousin oak apple brandy casks. Additionally, a small amount of the rum was finished in apricot and orange bitters casks. Just 3,000 bottles are available beginning February 28, 2024 online and in-store in California, Hawaii, Florida, New Jersey, South Carolina and Texas. (SRP $109.99)
