At Seven Stills we focus on making whiskeys from extremely high quality craft beers. We are currently working on two separate projects, the Seven Stills Series and the Collaboration Series. The Seven Stills Series will consist of seven whiskeys that we have developed the craft beer for. Each whiskey will be for a different hill in San Francisco and will be designed by a local street artist.
The Collaboration Series are whiskeys made from commercially available beers. The main appeal of the collaboration series is that you can try the whiskey alongside the beer it was made from.
The Collaboration Series
The Collaboration Series is our whiskey line that uses different local breweries' beers to create unique whiskeys.
Whipnose: Whiskey Made from a Double IPA
Whipnose is the first whiskey in our Collaboration Series, with Pacific Brewing Laboratory. This whiskey is made from Pac Brew Lab's double IPA and opens with huge whips of west coast hops: Simcoe, Cascade and Centennial. The whiskey drinks like a concentrated IPA, without any of the hop bitterness, and finishes with sweet maple sugar.
This bottle was designed by Cannon Dill.
Tasting Notes: Whipnose opens up with huge aromas of California hops and is bursting with citrus and floral notes. It then opens up with rye spiciness and caramel, and finishes with smooth vermont maple sugar.
Seven Stills: A Still for Every Hill of San Francisco
Seven Stills was founded off of the unique concept of making whiskeys from different craft beers. Each year we will release a new whiskey for one of the Seven Hills of San Francisco, each made from a different craft beer, and each designed by a different local artist.
Fluxuate is the second whiskey in the Seven Hills Series. This whiskey is distilled from a coffee porter with Flux Cold Brewed Coffee. The whiskey opens up with huge aromas of coffee and vanilla. The palate is medium full to thick and has a slick mouthfeel. Since this whiskey is brewed with coffee and uses a high proportion of roasted malts Fluxuate both opens and finishes with dark, rich roasted flavors.
Only 59 cases were released within California.
Fluxuate was designed by David Polka for Rincon Hill of San Francisco. The label depicts a tumultuous and rapidly changing post-Gold Rush Rincon Hill, likely similar to the one JA Folger discovered while beginning to build Folgers Coffee.
Chocasmoke is made from a chocolate oatmeal stout with peat smoked malted barley. It opens with huge bursts of chocolate and dark, malty aromas. It is smooth, and sweet throughout, and finishes with a subtle hint of peat and smoke.
Chocasmoke was designed by Zio Ziegler for the Twin Peaks of San Francisco. The Twin Peaks were first called "los pechos de la choca", and therefore the depicts a nude Indian maiden.
The bottle was designed by Zio Ziegler.
