Tucked away in an unassuming corner of Longmont, Still Cellars is a true micro-distillery, conceived and constructed by its two owner-operators, Jason R. Houston and Sadye Rose W. Still Cellars is certified organic, conducts business responsibly and kindly, and strives to create a space that fosters and supports local art and community. The arthouse and spirits reflect the owners’ passion for creativity and quality. The duo lovingly hand-craft each spirit from scratch using traditional methods and uncompromising standards. Each product artfully celebrates the complexities of its original ingredients, and offers a truly unique sipping experience. The arthouse acts as the distillery’s tasting room as well as a venue for local artists to exhibit and perform for the community. The tasting room is always open Wednesdays and Fridays from 4pm - 8:30ish for tours and cocktails, and the arthouse is open on other evenings for performances, exhibits, and private events.

All Still Cellars products are certified organic and made by hand and from scratch at Still Cellars in Longmont, CO. To retain the greatest amount of ingredient character possible Still Cellars uses whole food ingredients, does not chill-filter, and only gently filters its final products.
Whiskey Barley: Colorado’s first certified organic whiskey. Crafted in the tradition of an old-style scotch, this is not only a single malt but also a single-grain whiskey. Each barrel of this all-barley spirit is its own unblended batch, and offers a bold caramel nose, earthy body, and rich finish with playful citrus overtones. Designed to satiate a discerning palate, whiskey barley also brings new life to many classic whiskey cocktails.
Vodka: Made from fruit and grain, this vodka is distilled until clean, gently filtered, and cut with pure Rocky Mountain water. A smooth, silky sipping vodka with a subtle and alluring signature character.
Apple Straightup: An apple eau de vie or brandy in a category all its own. Still Cellars ferments and distills Colorado apples, then adeptly infuses the spirit with fresh apples giving it a delicate sweetness. With the full character of around fifteen pounds of apples per bottle, this truly original sipping spirit offers sophisticated complexity, mild fruit-sweetness, hints of apple peel bitterness, notes of honeysuckle, and a satisfying strength. Exquisite in a snifter on its own, apple straightup also swaps well for brandy and whiskey in many classic recipes.
Apple Ginger: Still Cellars takes the apple straightup spirit, then skillfully infuses it further with real dried ginger root, capturing the delightful spice and warming powers of ginger, and balancing the root’s bitterness with the floral sweetness of apple. This is a spirit for ginger lovers, and maintains all the medicinal properties of the potent herb. A wonder to behold on its own, apple ginger also pairs well with citrus, fruits, floral and savory herbs, and peppery spices.
Apple Cinnamon: Following the same principles as the apple ginger spirits, Still Cellars takes the apple straightup spirit and carefully infuses it further with real cinnamon. This is a wonderfully smooth and deeply warming sipping spirit that achieves a fine balance of subtle sweetness and bold character. Stands elegantly on its own, apple cinnamon also mixes well with cacao, orange, creams and milks, nuts.
