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 Whiskeys, 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 Whiskey is another shining example.
Turns out, roasted blue corn makes GREAT Whiskey with a buttery, nutty texture. And the critics LOVE the stuff! It’s a Texas Whiskey rock star — awards everywhere, ovation from fans, groupies in the backstage and the volume cranked up to 11. Rock on!
