About Balcones Rumble Cask Reserve
Balcones Rumble Cask Reserve is a uniquely Texas spirits made entirely from Texas ingredients: wildflower honey, mission figs, turbinado sugar and natural Texas Hill Country spring water. Together, the ingredients are fermented and distilled before being matured to perfection in small, oak barrels.
Following maturation, Balcones Rumble is bottled unfiltered and at barrel proof. The spirit has a rich aroma of honey, caramel apples, citrus and old leather that gives way to notes of toasted rye, burnt sugar and lush cognac on the palate. The finish is lingering and full, with touches of melon, honeydew and crème brulée. As a result of its unique ingredients, Balcones Rumble has flavors that are similar to Scotch whisky, cognac and rum.
Balcones Rumble Cask Reserve earned the Silver Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and won the Good Food Awards Medal in 2012.

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.
