Balcones True Blue 100 Proof Straight Corn Whiskey
True Blue 100 is made from the same select barrels of our
blue corn whisky that have always gone into our True Blue Cask Strength,
diluted down to 100 proof. As such, many Bourbon drinkers, in particular, may
gravitate to this powerfully subtle dram. Since the Bottled-in-Bond Act
of 1897, 100 proof has long stood for quality and authenticity. True Blue 100
carries on that tradition. 100% of the whisky in this bottle was born, raised,
and bottled at Balcones Ã¢€Å“from mash to glass. More approachable than full
cask-strength whisky, True Blue 100 retains the depth and complexity of
over-proof spirits with the softer edges, supple textures and fuller fruitiness
that slight dilution can bring. Rich notes of honeyed citrus, stone fruit and
cinnamon and a rich, roasted corn palate. Perfect or with as much water
as you prefer.
Balcones Baby Blue Corn Whisky isn't just the first
whisky made in Texas since Prohibition, it's also the first and only blue corn
whisky made anywhere in the world. Distilled twice and aged in five-gallon oak
barrels, Baby Blue is a hand-crafted spirit made inside a hand-crafted
distillery. Every square inch of Balcones Distilling, from the 235-gallon
copper pot stills hammered by hand to the woodwork and copper plumbing, was
made by the distillers at Balcones.
Balcones never uses chill filtering or caramel coloring in making Baby Blue
Whisky. Instead, Balcones uses only fresh New Mexican blue corn, ferments its
own wash and distills the product from start to finish, going so far as to
number each bottle by hand. "We're trying to do something that's
novel," he says. "More importantly, we're trying to do something
that's authentic. Balcones Blue 100 proof is made from roasted Hopi blue corn.
