Cocktail Inspiration:

First of all, I would like to give a personal thanks for the tour of the distillery. It was amazing! I always wanted to incorporate Black Sesame in cocktails for a long time, and when I tasted the Balcones Rye, it was time. This Sesame paste made from 100% black sesame and nothing else is very intense, usually it’s used for making desserts. The long finish of fine chocolate note of Balcones rye is accompanied with black sesame, which both has long long finish while both flavors continues to blend together.

Thank you.
