Balcones

It was illegal to produce alcohol in Texas up until 1997. It's amazing then that Texas's first whisky producer Balcones was regarded as having produced some of the best whisky in the world within 15 years.

Originally founded in 2008 out of hand built welding shop/warehouse/stills in Waco, Texas,  Balcones has gone from strength to strength on the foundation of their Corn and Bourbon whiskeys.  It hasn't all been plain sailing, however, 2014 saw an acrimonious split between investors and founder and creator Chip Tate, the later leaving the company. The distillery and brand have continued to expand though and are renowned for their bold and intense flavours.
