The Stowloch® distillation process uses a unique, all-natural, sustainable Missouri-centric production system. Built upon the historic alembic Armagnacais process, and combined with the 200-year history of distillation in the Ozark Highlands and stills manufactured from forged Missouri copper, Stowloch® is a true high-end spirit embracing the best of historic and sustainable best practices.
The custom stills allow for greater control, flavor depth and consistent profiles. And the entire process is chemical-free (unlike much of the industry), relying on longer fermentation and other elements of the distillation process. This all enables us to give Stowloch® its smooth finish that is hard to find in a 100-proof whiskey, and one that makes the final product one that is sure to become one of your favorites.
Additionally, sustainability is a core part of our business. We embrace sustainable practices such as recycled bottles, recycled waster and environmental responsibility. We also believe in the land where Stowloch® is produced - The Ozark Highlands.
America's Ozark Highlands is a true highland region, recognized and named by the US Government more than 200 years ago, with hundreds of years of distilling history. The limestone that covers the Ozark Highlands is a natural mineral that has been used for thousands of years to purify water and filters out elements such as iron, making the natural water of the region more like a sweet-tasting mineral water.
Once Stowloch® is produced, we age it in Missouri-made barrels for a minimum of 4 years before serving it to you. In fact, we don't debarrel Stowloch® until we are about ready to ship, making sure it continues to age until you are ready to drink it.
The combination of the unique Ozark Highlands, our amazing water, our commitment to sustainability and a chemical-free process, ensures that every glass of Stowloch® is indeed "holy water."
