Proof66 Notes

True Blue 100 Corn Whisky is their 100 proof expression from Texas craft-distiller Balcones (putting it in a class that could be considered "bottled in bond" if it followed some of the regulations around the whisky world). It is made exclusively from Hopi Blue Corn and in the words of the distiller, "as far as we know the only blue corn whiskey made anywhere."

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.)
