A more delicate riff on Balcones' flagship Texas Single Malt, the Mirador was aged in refill oak casks. The lighter barrel influence lets the spirit shine through without sacrificing the richness and complexity.

About Balcones Mirador Single Malt 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.

After mashing the malted barley, they slowly ferment it at cool temperatures for seven days. Their fermentation process, which takes nearly twice as long as most other distilleries and is done at much lower temperatures, ultimately produces a richer, smoother whisky. After distillation, they age the whisky using a unique barreling process. "The main difference between Balcones and other single malts," they explain, "is the barreling. The cooperage we use and the care we put into blending and reblending the casks defines a lot of what makes our malt what it is. All of the barrels used are bespoke casks made from fully yard-aged oak with custom toast and char profiles."

Crafted by Icons of Whisky America 2019's Master Distiller of the Year Jared Himstedt, Balcones Mirador Single Malt channels the richness and complexity of their award-winning flagship Texas Single Malt Whisky into a softer, more delicate dram. It's been aged in refill oak, making the barrel's influence lighter and the overall profile less oaky, letting the spirit shine through in all its glory.

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 American Whiskey

There are two main representatives of the American whiskey family, bourbon, and rye, but some other spirits don't fall into those two strictly regulated categories.


There's equally strictly regulated American single malt, made from 100% malted barley, Tennessee whiskey, essentially bourbon filtered through maple charcoal and aged in new charred oak barrels.


And then there's moonshine, a high proof (150- 170 proof) distilled spirit mainly made out of corn which gained popularity during the prohibition.
