Balcones Whiskey Tasting
Members and their guests are invited to join us for a casual complimentary tasting of Balcones Whiskey with Matt Kesteloot
In 2008, Balcones was nothing more than an idea driven by a passion to create something original and authentic, right in the Heart of Texas. It all started in an old welding shop under a bridge in Waco. For the next year, they 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 they had accomplished on their own, they began distilling in 2009.
With an emphasis on ingredients, the team at Balcones have always meticulously sought out ingredients for their richness in flavor. From blue corn grown in New Mexico to the first Texas-grown malted barley, they aim to get the most out of their raw materials. They make every effort to preserve the luscious flavors of these ingredients in their spirits so that each sip is a decadent expression of their original sate. Every spirit they make adheres to that philosophy: it should be recognizable and delectable.
