The Spirit of Adventure: Rod & Hammer's 'SLO Stills' Straight Bourbon Whiskey

Surfer Meets Cowboy: A Story of Friendship and Whiskey

In an inspiring tale of camaraderie, Rodney "Rod" Cegelski, a California surfer, and Hamish "Hammer" Marshall, an Aussie jackaroo, forged a bond over their shared appreciation for fine spirits and the captivating allure of California's Central Coast. This unique partnership gave rise to Rod & Hammer's SLO Stills, a distillery born from a desire to share their passion for whiskey with friends and family, embodying the adventurous spirit of both the surfer and the cowboy.

Crafting California Excellence

In the heart of California's Central Coast, Rod & Hammer's SLO Stills is dedicated to crafting exceptional whiskey that encapsulates the essence of adventure. Every bottle of their straight bourbon whiskey is a homage to the Golden State, uniquely cut with purified Pacific Ocean water, blending the soul of California with the spirit of Australia in a harmonious symphony of flavors.

From Grain to Glass: A Journey of Perfection

The 'SLO Stills' Straight Bourbon Whiskey production is a meticulous journey through milling, mashing, fermentation, distillation, maturing, proofing, and bottling. Aged for two years in new American oak barrels, this bourbon emerges as a smooth, mellow spirit, rich with hints of caramel, roasted nuts, corn, and vanilla. Its crafting process, enhanced by the unique addition of Pacific Ocean water, stands a testament to Rod & Hammer's commitment to innovation and quality.
