Stephen F. Austin Athletics and Texas-based Sisterdale Distilling Co. have announced a partnership to release a bourbon in August.

“We are extremely excited to be able to launch this partnership with Sisterdale Distilling Co. and our very own bourbon that celebrates the history and beauty of East Texas.  This has been an extremely collaborative effort with Sisterdale, and I am confident that ‘Jack Nation will enjoy this bourbon product.  There are very few institutions with officially branded bourbon/whiskey partnerships,” said Director of Athletics Ryan Ivey. “I appreciate the work of our staff, our partners with Learfield/CLC and, of course, Sisterdale and the statewide businesses that will carry this great product.”

Stone Fort bourbon celebrates the iconic Stone Fort’s history, which pre-dates the state of Texas itself. Stephen F. Austin will be available throughout the region beginning Aug. 1.  Also, starting on Aug. 1; the Centennial Stone Fort campaign will launch with various SFA Athletics donation levels accompanied by Stone Fort-related gifts.  The first 100 bottles will be available for selection as gifts based on giving levels and availability.

The official launch of Stone Fort Bourbon will be on July 28 at The Fredonia Hotel from 5:30 to 7 p.m. The event is free to attend, and there will be live music, appetizers and giveaways given away throughout the event.
