    Re: Balcones: Next stop, world domination?

    Winston, where can I find a bottle of your bourbon? I'm down in Austin and no one even has an inventory item for it yet. When can we expect it to hit the shelves? I can't wait to try it!

    We haven't shipped it out yet. I don't know yet when it will come out.

    Come take a tour of the distillery, I'm sure we can find you a pour to sip on.

    What the hell Winston? I thought you guys didn't officially make bourbon?
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    We don't. We made one barrel. It's part of our commemorative 5th Anniversary Series. You can also expect a straight single malt, a straight corn whisky and a straight version of Brimstone (called Resurrection)

    Being that they are all single barrel releases, and will be at cask strength, there will barely be any to go around. We're only releasing 100 bottles of the bourbon worldwide.

    Not to mention the pure pot still whiskey that sounds interesting. Unfortunately not yet in Georgia as far as I can tell.
    The article is about our wheated bourbon, right at 5 years old, in 53 gallon barrels. We have a wheat whiskey which is not far off from that whiskey, but lighter on purpose. The thing that makes good wheated bourbon for us among a few other things is they grow a fine white winter wheat here, has a flavor like nothing else. I often wonder if S-W used white wheat. It would be out, but government label approval is slow right now. The pure pot still is an irish style, which is hard to get right now. Be a while before we hit GA. All we can do to keep the northeast in whiskey right now.

    Tom I read about the Pot still expression on your blog, can you tell me the proportion of unmalted barley used?

    Thanks Tom, I wish more makers were as disclosive, it's not like we are all going to run out and copy your product. Do the oats add flavor?
