About the Distillery:

In 2008, BALCONES WAS DRIVEN TO CREATE SOMETHING

ORIGINAL AND AUTHENTIC

In 2008, Balcones was nothing more than an idea driven by a passion to create something original and authentic, right here in the Heart of Texas. It all started in an old welding shop under a bridge in Waco. For the next year, we replaced the roofing, knocked out walls, laid brick, cut pipes, installed copper pot stills from Portugal, and shoehorned a whisky distillery inside that quaint building. Proud of what we had accomplished on our own, we began distilling in 2009.

Balcones Distilling Pot Still Bourbon 750 ml

NOSE
Honeycrisp apples, toasted oak, kettle corn, graham cracker, oiled glove
TASTE

FINISH

Big flavors have always been the cornerstone of our prized Texas Whiskies, and Texas Pot Still Bourbon is no exception. Made grain-to-glass using a traditional pot still distillation ensures a rich and viscous spirit that stands up to aging in new charred oak without losing its essence. Each dram is full of character and body, with an aromatic entry and soft finish, for an approachable yet memorable experience.
