Did you know that the water we use in Republic Whiskey comes from Hill Country rainwater harvested at our distillery?! Using rainwater means less water is diverted from the municipal water system, and more water stays in the aquifers to be used in rivers and lakes to sustain fish, birds, and other wildlife. Cheers to that on this Earth Day! #Rainwater #EarthDay #RepublicWhiskey

Did you know that women were largely behind the creation and evolution of whiskey? As far back as the 4th century, we see written stories of Mary the Prophetess, who created the alembic still, which is still used in some parts of Europe for making brandy or whiskey. By the late 1700's women were distilling at home. And in 1881, Catherine Spears Frye Carpenter created the first sour mash recipe –the basis of most bourbon. The history of whiskey is full of influential women! We salute women on this International Women's Day! #HappyInternationalWomensDay
