"A timeless style of malt whisky, Balcones "1" Texas Single Malt breathes new life into centuries of distilling tradition with classic techniques and ingredients adapted for New World tastes. Opening aromas bear hints of toffee and overripe fruits. On the palate, layers of toasted malt and honey give way to mellow notes of baked pears and apples. A long finish is accompanied by cinnamon and cloves. Texas made, Texas proud, we hope you enjoy the whisky we owe our success to as much as we enjoy making it."
"Warm boiled grains are inviting and comforting aromas. In the mouth it is silken, with corn and wheat flavors shining through, cinnamon spice and mild cedar. The flavors turn roasted with charred wood and caramelized grains at the end." 93 Points, Excellent, Highly Recommended, 2017 Ultimate Spirits Challenge“~Distiller Notes

Eight years ago, Balcones was little more than an idea fueled by a ruthless drive to create something new, something genuine, something worthwhile - a Texas whisky tradition. It all started with an old welding shop under a bridge. We hammered and welded our own stills, and sawed and nailed on that little shack to build the distillery that we use to this day. Since then, we have released ten unique whiskies and spirits, of which we are very proud, and won over 140 national and international awards from the world's top judges and critics. We don't just make whisky in Texas. We make Texas whisky.
