Proof66 Notes

Balcones Rumble is a spirit based on sugar--which would normally classify it as a rum--but in the words of the distiller it is "inspired by rum but not rum.... this is what happens when whisky distillers play with sugar." The spirit is further flavored with local wildflower honey, figs, and then aged in small oak barrels. They suggest drinking straight. In an effort to assist the consumer, we have opted to label this as a flavored rum, despite it possibly not qualifying as such. The cask reserve is bottled at near overproof strength.

Balcones Distillery is a craft-distiller in Texas founded by Chip Tate and said to be named for a geological fault line running through Texas. Not only do they craft their own spirits from scratch but actually built and installed all of their equipment. Their whiskey first made market in September of 2009. Buoyed by early success, Balcones sought investment equity for a $15 million expansion through majority shareholder Greg Allen... this resulted in a break-up where Chip Tate left the company after a buyout. The company is now owned and managed by PE Investors, LLC and will move forward with the multi-million dollar expansion in 2015. (The full story offered by the NY Times.)
