About Seven Stills 1.21 Gigawatts Whiskey
Tim Obert founded the Seven Stills Brewery & Distillery with his friend after they graduated from college together. At first, the pair did everything with their own two pairs of hands, but by 2016 the operation had grown considerably, resulting in them opening an 18.500 square-foot brewery & distillery in Mission Bay, San Francisco by 2017 with the help of some crowdfunding and involving their fans in the process.
With the name paying tribute to the Seven Hills of San Francisco, they produce craft beer as well as whiskey. The twist here is that their whiskey is made from finished craft beer, a process that has been in use in Germany for centuries but is still relatively new to America. While they mostly use their own beer, they often collaborate with various breweries. Each whiskey is crafted using a different style of beer, making for some truly unique expressions.
The 1.21 Gigawatts Whiskey is a collaboration with the Tioga Sequoia Craft Brewery from downtown Fresno, California. The two teams got together and brewed an imperial oat stout, a thicker and stronger version of the popular style. The finished beer was then distilled and aged in new American oak, producing 540 bottles. The resulting 94-proof whiskey is bold and rich with notes of chocolate, coffee, and caramel.

About American Whiskey
There are two main representatives of the American whiskey family, bourbon, and rye, but some other spirits don't fall into those two strictly regulated categories.
There's equally strictly regulated American single malt, made from 100% malted barley, Tennessee whiskey, essentially bourbon filtered through maple charcoal and aged in new charred oak barrels.
And then there's moonshine, a high proof (150- 170 proof) distilled spirit mainly made out of corn which gained popularity during the prohibition.
