Unique Balcones Bourbon for connoisseurs and debutants.
 
In 2009, a tiny distilling establishment with big ideas was founded in an old welding shop under a bridge in Waco, Texas. Balcones Distilling is where a small Spirit revolution took place and pushed Texans into a new era of fine booze. After they refurbished the old building and brought copper pot stills from Portugal, rugged Bourbons and delicious Single Malts started flowing, redefining what the American Whiskey can be. Using blue corn from New Mexico and Texas-grown barley, Balcones creates Spirits with a recognizable terroir.
 
Texas Pot Still Straight Bourbon Whisky is one of the special releases, distilled in a giant Forsyth pot still and matured for a couple of years in new charred American oak barrels. Another special feature of this Bourbon is its mash bill: roasted blue corn, Texas wheat, Texas rye and malted barley. Bottled at 92 proof, it’s both a crowd-pleaser as a gateway Balcones Bourbon, and a sophis​ticated expression designed for seasoned fans of the brand.

Bourbon Is a ''new barrel Spirit'': One of the legal requirements for Bourbon is that it only be aged in brand new oak charred barrels.
Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
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.
Balcones was one of the first distilleries to experiment with exotic corn varieties for its Bourbons, including blue corn.
Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
