About Seven Stills Rorschach Test 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 Rorschach Test Whiskey started as a barrel-aged imperial stout beer that was brewed in collaboration with Moksa Brewing Co., a small and independent craft brewery from Rocklin, California. The Imperial Pastry Stout was finished with Andytown coffee, cacao nibs, coconut, and vanilla beans. The beer was then distilled at Seven Stills and aged in new American oak, producing 540 bottles. With the dark malt at its core, it has additional notes of chocolate and coffee.

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.
