Can Whiskey Be Green?

Hello Lovers! Happy Fri-Yay!! How’s the week treated y’all?! I’m not going to lie, as I’m typing this I could really use a cocktail. Like I’ve said before “adulting is hard!” some weeks are awesome, othersΒ not so much. It should be noted; you’re probably reading this and it’s morning, no, I’m not an alchohalic πŸ˜‰ I’m typing this blog as I often do, in the evening.

Speaking of cocktails, have you ever heard of Austonian Whiskey? I wouldn’t be surprised if you haven’t. They just prepared their very first shipment back in May.Β Austonian Whiskey is a new Texas, FIRST ever sustainably matured whiskey, created by two engineering masterminds.

One night, 2 Austin engineers, Lawrence and Frank (the masterminds above) were at a local bar hanging out, drinking, and having conversations about the growing whiskey barrel shortage, I mean… what else do guys talk about?! Well, these two turned this conversation into an idea, that idea then turned into inventing a new “green” process in the making of whiskey, this then turned into a business and dreams coming true.

What sets Austonian Whiskey apart from the other whiskeys? Traditionally whiskey is typically aged in wooden casks/ barrels, generally made of charred white oak. Since Lawrence and Frank have created a magical (closely under-wraps) green technology to get the traditional vanilla oak-y taste of a “barrel aged” whiskey without the barrel, we can have cocktails AND save the trees! That’s right folks, do you get what that means?! NO trees are harmed in the making of this whiskey! (I need a shirt that says that btw πŸ™‚ ) The impact can be HUGE y’all. Just think about it, if everyone switched their whiskey choice to Austonian Whiskey it would save about 95% of the trees otherwise used by “the other guys”

It won’t just stop there though…. Do you know what happens when forests are cut down? it’s not just killing trees, it’s also displacing animals. The animals that live in the forests now no longer have their habitat, their homes. I don’t know about you, but that pulls on my heart-strings <3

Just think, there’s a barrel shortage right now; how many trees have already been cut down? How many animals have already been displaced? Now think about the fact that with Austonian whiskey we can directly impact this. We have the ability to help save our planet in more ways than just recycling at home or composting.

I don’t want to sound like an infomercial here. I TRULY believe and like this product. I am not and have not been paid $$ to promote this product, however, I wasΒ given a sample bottle to try them out and hear their story. I want all you Lovers to know that I will NEVER promote something that I don’t truly love, like, use, or believe in. I will always have transparency and want you all to know that my blogs will always come from a very genuine place.

ALL that to say; I believe in this product. We need to get Austonian Whiskey out there!! Ask your bartender to add it to their bar program. Ask your local liquor store like Twin Liquors or Spec’s to pick it up. Follow Austonian Whiskey on Instagram to find out where they’ll be next. Let’s start our very own whiskey movement!! Whiskey can be GREEN!! even without food coloring and the luck of the Irish πŸ˜‰
