In the wake of its successful Single Barrel Private Selection Program, Balcones Distilling has announced it will be expanding its offerings.
Three new additions will be added to the collection, including single barrels of the Texas High Plains Single Malt, Rumble Cask Reserve, and Texas Rum for whisky enthusiasts. These join the already beloved single barrels: Texas “1” Single Malt, Texas Rye, and True Blue Corn Whisky.
“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,” noted Jared Himstedt, head distiller at Balcones Distilling. “By definition, there will never be another taste exactly like the casks that are selected.”
The program allows whiskey clubs, businesses, individuals, and retailers to handpick a branded single cask of Balcones’ award-winning spirits. Each barrel is bottled at cask strength and boasts a singular taste profile thanks to a unique mash bill, age, barrel, and location within the distillery or rickhouse.
To ensure safety and a happy selection process, the Balcones team has developed a unique barrel selection kit that allows customers to try 100ml samples of the available Single Barrel selections. Once the samples arrive, the award-winning team walks each customer through the collection with a live 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.”
The Balcones Distillery, known for its cutting edge efforts, was named Innovator of the Year in 2018 and 2019 by the Icons of Whisky America. The brand will be delivering to 40 states by the end of 2020 and is well set to adapt to the challenges of providing a luxury shopping experience while adhering to safety restrictions.
