Established in 2008, Balcones Distilling is only the second Texas distillery to get its distiller’s permit but it beat out the competition when it released Baby Blue corn whisky to the market in 2009. Dubbed “the original Texas whisky”, Baby Blue's market debut achieved historic firsts. It marked “the first time Texans could buy a bottle of Texas made whisky”. Balcones Distilling made history again in December 2012 when Balcone's Distilling's "1" Single Malt beat out whiskies from more established Scotch houses in London’s Best in Glass competition. Dubbed “The Judgement of London”, the win “helped legitimize American craft distilleries… and signaled the emergence of Texas as a whiskey-producing region”. The distillery produces three lines. Their Classics are year-round whiskies available at distributors. Also, the Annual Releases are “released only once throughout the calendar year”. Finally, their Special Releases are “extremely limited” whiskies including some that "may never be re-released".
As a testament to their commitment to quality, the "1" Single Malt still continues to win awards to this day!
Their process involves using by-products in making exotic spirits. Local Goat Distillery partnered with Veldhuizen Cheese and they used their whey for the base of their vodka, acting as natural sugar. They also have "good food" like "the tacos are so good", the "smoked salsa is amazing" and the "cheese plate is great!" They "make good martinis and they have a list of many drink choices". They also "serve cocktails made with their own liquor. Rum, vodka, gin". You can try the "Bloody Mary with the horseradish vodka". It is also good "taking the tour" where they will "explain the entire process" in making their products. They also "have live music on Fridays and Saturdays".
