Go BIG or go home. The only way they know... and follow. 

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 (thank goodness!), but it is filled with big ideas.  
 
They hand-make a range of Whiskies, Rums, and mysterious fiddly things, all of which are unabashedly crafted with the big flavors they love. But just because these Texan Spirits stand up and yell "Yeee-Haw!" doesn’t mean they don’t have all the serious craftsmanship and quality you get in the big city or the fancy-dancy capitals of Europe. These Spirits are top notch, and they have the awards to prove it.

Balcones Distillery keeps on cranking out some of the coolest new products with a healthy dose of Texan independence and good ‘ol American tryhard grit. Their ingenuity manifests itself in the Balcones Brimstone Smoked Corn Whisky, which is definitely one of the most original smoky brews around. What’s the catch? Instead of smoking the grain, they smoke the Whisky. 
 
How exactly do the Balcones boys perform such a feat (sans peat)? Well, that’s a secret, y’all. All we know is the Whisky is smoked using sun-baked Texas scrub oak, which gives it the intense aroma of a traditional Texas BBQ that hits you in the face faster than a campfire with some serious tail wind. Hate it or love, there’s no denying the fact that this Whisky leaves no one indifferent. Right on. Go BIG or go home.

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.
Balcones was one of the first distilleries to experiment with exotic corn varieties for its Bourbons, including blue corn.
An un-aged American Whisky is often called “white dog.”Sour Mash 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.
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.
Moonshine Whiskey is distilled from a varied mix of corn and sugar and is aged in Mason jars and jugs for the length of time it takes the customers to get home.
Corn Whiskey is a commercial product that must contain at least 80% corn, be distilled at less than 80% ABV (160 proof), and, if wood-aged, may be aged in either used or new un-charred barrels.
