    Re: Balcones: Next stop, world domination?

    Balcones won awards for stuff that doesn't have a COLA label, let alone stuff that has never been released for retail?! Is this true, Winston?

    US retail was suggested at $95. But UK prices are always going to be higher.

    Crooked Bourbon is the only thing we haven't bottled so far.

    I'm jealous. I don't even want to open my bottles.

    Perhaps I should clarify. I am looking for a specific number of how many awards were won by products with no COLA label. I also want to know how many awards were won by a product that did have a COLA label, but have never been released to the general public in the form of being able to purchase at a liquor store. Both of these are more specific than "bottled". Please quantify.

    The Crooked Bourbon is the only thing we submitted that doesn't have a COLA. Everything we entered will eventually see a retail release, even if it is only out of the distillery.

    We don't have distribution in Indiana yet unfortunately. Have you tried ordering from an online retailer like Binny's?

    That still doesn't answer my question as to the specific number of awards fitting the requested criteria. Again, please quantify. It is a fairly simple question with a numerical answer, no need for obfuscation.
