Balcones is an award winning craft Texas distillery, producing whisky in small batches only from the finest ingredients. All the batch numbers are hand written and all the wax seals are hand stamped as a proof of quality. Each barrel is personally tasted by the master distiller Chip Tate to ensure the highest quality of whisky.
Purification through fire — a Texas oak fire, that is. Rather than using Scottish peat smoke, this one-of-a-kind Balcones Brimstone whisky is smoked with sun-baked Texas scrub oak using our own secret process. The result is a whisky full of fresh youthful corn and light fruit notes married with a bold smokiness. Brimstone is the world‘s first wood smoked whisky … a Texas campfire in a bottle. Bottled at 53% alc/vol.
NOSE: Smoke, chocolate covered raisins, corn sweetness.
