Smooth as the BABY's bottom and it hits like a bolt out of the BLUE.
 
You just have to love the charming, independent, and rebellious spirit of Texas. Balcones Distilling is based in Waco — just about halfway between Dallas and Austin. Texas is a big state, and they like everything big… big steaks, big trucks, big hats, and big flavors. Balcones is still a small distillery, but it is filled with big ideas.  
 
They hand-make a range of Whiskies, Rums, and a few mysterious fiddly things, all of which are unabashedly crafted with the BIG flavors they love. But just because these Texas Spirits stand up and yell "Yee-Haw!" doesn’t mean that they don’t have the serious craftsmanship and quality you get in the big fancy capitals of the world. These Spirits are top notch, and they carry multiple awards to prove it. 
 
Balcones Distillery keeps on cranking out some of the coolest new products with a healthy dose of Texas independence and good ‘ol American tryhard Spirit. Their Baby Blue Corn Whisky is another shining example.
 
Turns out, roasted blue corn makes GREAT Whisky with a buttery, nutty texture. And the critics LOVE the stuff! It’s a Texas Whisky rock star — awards everywhere, ovation from fans, groupies in the backstage and the volume cranked up to 11. Rock on!

Tennessee Whiskey closely parallels Bourbon, but final filtering through sugar-maple charcoal (called the Lincoln County Process) is what some producers say differentiates them. Tennessee Whiskey’s finish is sweeter and smoother than Bourbon.
Balcones was one of the first distilleries to experiment with exotic corn varieties for its Bourbons, including blue corn.
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
is the fermentation process by which a percentage of a previous fermentation is added to a new batch as a "starter" to get the fermentation going and maintain a level of consistency from batch to batch. A sweet mash means that only fresh yeast is added to a new batch to start fermentation.
Rye Whiskey is made from mash that is at least 51 percent rye. The grain gives Rye Whiskey its spicy, sometimes peppery, and bitter flavor. It was a big seller before Prohibition, and after decades in obscurity, it’s fashionable again. Fun fact: George Washington distilled Rye Whiskey at Mount Vernon.
George Washington was a man of many talents being both a military braniac and the First President of the United States. Interestingly, he also became the largest Whiskey producer in the United States after leaving the politics.
