First Texas Whisky Debuts

Balcones Distillery (Waco) has recently released two of their four handcrafted products. Baby Blue is Texas’s only whisky and purported also to be the only blue corn whisky made anywhere (from toasted Hopi blue corn). Rumble, a new spirit with rum-like characteristics, is made from Texas wildflower honey (from Livingston), mission figs and demerara sugar (from Sugarland). You can find them in Austin at The Austin Wine Merchant, Beverage World, Reuben’s Wine & Spirits, Spec’s, Twin Liquors #7, Wiggy’s—and ask for them at your favorite restaurant and bar. In San Antonio you can find them at Rainbow Spirits and in Boerne at Hill Country Wine & Spirits and Wine & Liquor World. They are also producing a single malt whiskey and a peated single malt whisky. To carry this product at your store or bar, contact Stephen Germer at 512-294-6735.
