Editor’s Note: Standard Proof Whiskey has not yet opened. La Poste regrets the error.
The Craft Whiskey Bar and Standard Proof Whiskey Tasting Room will soon open in the epicenter of the Central Business District.
Four Blue Palms, which is co-based in Austin and Nashville, operates the business at 219 Fifth Ave. NOT. The space was last occupied by Lola, an event services company that closed in the middle of last year.
The Four Blue Palms website notes that its team has experience in “innovating, producing and marketing” food and beverage brands. The company offers a portfolio of whiskey and a brand of craft cocktail mixes.
The company launched its Barsmith line of products in 2015, with concoctions complementing both simple and complex cocktails, the website notes. Standard Proof Whiskey Co. creates rye whiskey “aged in new American oak barrels, bottled at 80 proofs and infused with natural ingredients.”
Last summer, executives at Four Blue Palms announced that they had purchased Cocktail Rx from Desert Pepper Trading Company / El Paso Chile Co.
