Balcones Distilling Expands Single Barrel Program With Three New Cask Options

WACO, TEXAS – Balcones Distilling has announced the expansion of its successful Single Barrel Private Selection Program. For the first time, Balcones will offer Single Barrels of Texas High Plains Single Malt, Rumble Cask Reserve, and Texas Rum for whisky enthusiasts across the country.  The three new additions will join the other Single Barrels in the program, including Texas “1” Single Malt, Texas Rye and True Blue Corn Whisky.

Through the Single Barrel Private Selection Program, retailers, whisky clubs, businesses, and individuals are invited to hand-pick their own branded single cask of Balcones’ award-winning spirits. Bottled at cask strength, each single barrel boasts a singular taste profile born of its unique mash bill, barrel, age, and location within the distillery or rickhouses. Known for pushing the limits of whisky, Balcones was named Innovator of the Year in 2018 and 2019 by the Icons of Whisky America. The brand diligently explores a variety of unique ingredients, fermentation techniques, wood species, barrel innovation, maturation variables, and barrel finishes to deliver new and unique flavor.

“Our fans are always looking for interesting and unexpected flavor experiences, and our Single Barrel program provides the opportunity for them to select truly one-of-a-kind spirits,” said Jared Himstedt, head distiller at Balcones Distilling. “By definition, there will never be another taste exactly like the casks that are selected.”

In an effort to ensure customers can safely select their barrels remotely, Balcones sends their unique barrel selection kits with 100-milliliter samples of available Single Barrel expressions to customers via mail. Once received, the award-winning team at Balcones walks customers through the barrel selection process live via video conference.

“We’re providing the ability to have one-of-a-kind Single Barrel selection experience while safely social distancing,“ said Alex Elrod, national single barrel and brand education manager. “Now more than ever, customers want unique experiences to appreciate the good things going on around them. We want to continue to deliver the very best spirits that help people get through this time.”

Those interested in exploring the Balcones Single Barrel program are invited to contact Alex Elrod at Lead times will vary by market.
