Balcones Texas Rye Whisky is a handcrafted, small batch whiskey made from 100% rye mashbill. This unique whiskey was distilled in copper pot stills, bringing new subtlety and perspective to the approach. The result is a complex and flavorful whiskey with notes of crystal, chocolate and roasted rye.
In 2008, Balcones was nothing more than an idea driven by a passion to create something original and authentic, right here in the Heart of Texas. It all started in an old welding shop under a bridge in Waco. For the next year, we replaced the roofing, knocked out walls, laid brick, cut pipes, installed copper pot stills from Portugal, and shoehorned a whisky distillery inside that quaint building. Proud of what we had accomplished on our own, we began distilling in 2009.
