About Balcones 100 Proof Rye Whisky

Handcrafted in small batches, Balcones Texas Single Malt Whisky is made from 100% malted Golden Promise barley. Golden Promise is an early-maturing spring barley that has a depth of flavor ideal for single malts. While it was popular in Scotland for many years, it gave way to cheaper barely that was higher in yield but lower in quality.

The first in a series of anniversary bottlings for Balcones, this is a limited-edition cask strength bottled at 62.5% ABV. This Texas whiskey is made with 100% rye, and raw elbon grain from north and northwest Texas as well as crystal, chocolate and roasted rye varieties, giving the whisky a special rich chocolate character with more traditional rye spice notes. Aged for almost two years, this rye is matured in new American oak barrels and brought to proof with Hill Country spring water.

About Balcones

Situated in Texas where the extreme and rapid temperature swings make the barrels "breathe" much faster, Balcones Distilling started as a passion project in an old Texas weldin shop in 2009. Today, this is one of the most unique, grain to glass craft distilleries out there. Using only the best of ingredients from blue corn grown in New Mexico to the first malted barley grown in Texas and handmade Scottish Forsyths copper-pot stills, Balcones pays special attention to the barrels. They consider oak to be an ingredient in whisky as well and their barrels are all customized. Balcones whisky is aged in several barrel types for a more complex flavor profile. Besides Balcones whisky which is adored for its bold and intense flavors, they also make rum.

About Rye

As American as the bald eagle, rye whiskey was first brewed in the American Northeast in the 1600s. Even George Washington distilled it after leaving the Oval Office, so there’s no way of denying its origin.
It’s distinguished from bourbon for its original and unique spicy notes.


By law, rye whiskey must be made from at least 51% rye grain, aged in new and charred oak barrels for at least two years, and bottled at no more than 62,5% ABV.
