    Re: Balcones: Next stop, world domination?

    I guess I'd be more excited if there were any plans for releasing some of that stuff to the general public. It's like a movie winning an Academy Award for best picture, but it never getting released to theaters or video.

    Re: Balcones: Next stop, world domination?

    Please tell us how many spirits (total, not just Balcones) were entered into this competition and how many won awards. Without that information, and they don't publish it, the awards are worthless.

    For a mere $500 per entry, please also enter into the Grand International Wade Woodard poobah awards Competition.

    This is all a promise of things to come. We are cranking out these spirits in a <2600 square foot distillery Chip and his crew built from scratch basically. Just think of what we'll be able to do with a new 65k square foot facility.

    ? did you mean to post "I'll let you know what I find out". Your company entered the competition, surely it can find out this information (how many spirits entered vs. awards given)

    Congrats Winston! Chip is a miracle worker and its good that the world is starting to figure that out.

    By the way, nice name, Crooked Bourbon. I'm looking forward to the Special Reserve edition with an age statement of 729 days (a day shy of 2 years) at 72.9% ABV in a 729ml bottle. ;-)

    It also appears that you do know where the Commonwealth of Bourbon is. :-P

    Thanks buddy! We are pretty stoked ourselves. I just looked at the awards again and we dominated the double gold awards, taking 5 out of 28 awarded!
