 One question we get all the time at the Whiskey Still Company is: "Can my Still be used to make spirits other than moonshine?" I'm happy to say that the answer to that is a resounding "YES!"

Here's your can't-miss holiday Rye Whiskey recipe

  Ever since I got into home distilling, holidays at my house have been extra satisfying. Take this past Thanksgiving for example. I served delicious food to my guests, and right alongside all that feasting, I poured rye whiskey, that I had made with my very own hands. The enjoyment I got watching my friends and family enjoy my creation was priceless. I get to enjoy this feeling all year long too! I thought you might like to have the same experience this holiday season, so here’s my recipe. Please be sure to visit our Facebook page to let me...
