about rock town

Rock Town Distillery is proud to call Little Rock home and source ingredients from farmers across Arkansas. Phil Brandon’s goal for Rock Town was to make an affordable product using all-natural ingredients that could compete against any top-shelf competitor in the nation. That is precisely what Rock Town has done.

In 2009, Phil Brandon left his corporate job in the pursuit of his passion, starting a distillery. Thus the phrase ‘Our Passion Is Our Spirit’ was born, and in 2010 Rock Town Distillery found its home in Little Rock, Arkansas. 

Phil Brandon, and his wife Diana, did not let small-town beginnings impede Rock Town Distillery from quickly becoming internationally recognized. In 2013, Rock Town Distillery was recognized for the first time on an international stage, winning awards at the San Francisco WSC (World Spirits Competition) for their Bourbon, Gin, and Vodka. 

Rock Town Distillery’s founding phrase ‘Our Passion is Our Spirit’ is proven true even today, with numerous international spirit awards and products offered around the globe.

Proof Of Excellence

COLUMN Still Collection Story

Welcome to the Rock Town Column Still Collection, where every sip takes you on a journey through the heart of Kentucky, and straight into the soul of Arkansas. This collection was born out of a quest to bring the best of both worlds together in a single bottle of bourbon, and we are proud to offer it to you today.

In March of 2020, our Head Distiller Phil Brandon set out on a mission to find a way to keep up with the demand for Rock Town bourbon. The search ended when he discovered the Collaborative Distilling Program offered by Bardstown Bourbon Company, which allowed him to use his own bourbon recipes and the same Arkansas-grown grains that have helped produce the quality bourbon Rock Town is known for.

Working with our grain partners at Stratton Seed from Stuttgart, Arkansas, 180,000 lbs. of Arkansas-grown corn and wheat were trucked 500 miles to Bardstown, Kentucky. And so, the adventure began: making Arkansas bourbon in the heart of Kentucky

Today, we are proud to present the Rock Town Column Still Collection, a special line of expertly distilled and creatively finished bourbons. Each bottle represents the culmination of our passion and dedication to the art of bourbon making, and we invite you to join us on this journey.

So, whether you’re a bourbon enthusiast or just looking for a taste of something new, we invite you to indulge in the Rock Town Column Still Collection. Experience the best of both worlds and taste the passion and dedication that goes into every bottle.
