This bourbon marks the 5th anniversary of the creation of Balcones distilling. It all began with Texan, Chip Tate, hand building his copper stills in an old welding shop. In the mean time they've picked up more than a smattering of awards for their seven spirits; over 40 national and international awards to date.

A limited edition bottling of Balcones Texas straight malt, finished in the Brimstone Resurrection cask. Brimstone Resurrection was made after accidentally burning corn to the bottom of their still but reviving the whisky using their special smoking process and letting it mature in a heavily charred cask (and ended up being crowned World's Best American Whisky at the World Whiskies Awards 2014). That one cask was used to finish this top notch Texas whisky.
