In 2008, Balcones was nothing more than an idea driven by a passion to create something original and authentic, right here in the Heart of Texas. It all started in an old welding shop under a bridge in Waco. For the next year, we replaced the roofing, knocked out walls, laid brick, cut pipes, installed copper pot stills from Portugal, and shoehorned a whisky distillery inside that quaint building. Proud of what we had accomplished on our own, we began distilling in 2009.


Our spirits have been recognized worldwide for their bold and intense flavors. We’ve won more awards than we can count, but they are only a testament to the devoted team that craft whiskies day in, day out. We’ve made a significant investment not only in our operations and whiskies, but in the community that we know and love as Waco.

It’s no secret to brewers and chefs alike: ingredients matter. We have always meticulously sought out ingredients for their richness in flavor. From blue corn grown in New Mexico to the first Texas-grown malted barley, we aim to get the most out of our raw materials because they make a better whisky. We make every effort to preserve the luscious flavors of these ingredients in our spirits so that each sip is a decadent expression of their original state. Every spirit we make adheres to that philosophy: it should be recognizable and delectable.
