Fierce Whiskers Distillery

Fierce Whiskers Distillery was the ground-up, new construction of a 7,812-SF distillery building, a 5,541-SF five-story rickhouse, and all associated site work.

The distillery can boast being “grain to glass” as the whiskey is produced from an all in-house process at the state-of-the-art sustainable production facility. In addition to the buildings, Sabre was responsible for the installation of owner-provided equipment including but not limited to a still, fermenters, grain silos, chilled water systems, and the copper pot still from renowned Vendome Copper and Brass Works out of Louisville.

Along the south wall of the distillery, Sabre installed multiple glass garage doors that lead to an outdoor patio. The scope also features a tasting room accented with custom wood finishes.

Westlake Dermatology, Dripping Springs

Sabre’s latest project for Westlake Dermatology is a lush first-generation finish out at Belterra Village in Dripping Springs. This luxury dermatology office with multiple custom finishes, designed by the Michael Hsu Office of Architecture, marks the third project Sabre has completed for the dermatological clinic, in addition to their North Lamar office and a research facility on Bee Caves Road.

The 2,800 square foot renovation incorporates smooth, curved Venetian plaster walls that frame the reception area, crafted by specialty contractors whose scope spanned the ceilings and walls in the lobbies and corridors. The resulting work product gives the clinic soft, rounded curves that provide a sumptuous canvas for the high-end finishes that give it a spa-like feel. Other special features included the reception desk, Italian tile in the bathrooms, wooden paneling, doors, fixtures, and the terrazzo flooring. Elegant, hanging light fixtures illuminate the beautiful office with lighting controls that program the entire suite. The reception desk is one piece, bronze metal with a stone façade.

The completed medical office is a gem of a space that will serve Westlake Dermatology clients in the Dripping Springs region for years to come.
