Balcones High Plains Texas Single Malt
American Single Malt
Balcones // Texas, USA
Balcones Distilling collaborated with Blacklands Malt, Texas's first malthouse, to create High Plains Texas Single Malt--a single malt made from Texas-grown barley. Blacklands Malt worked with Texas A&M University to research brewing and distilling grains that could be grown in Texas and they were able to provide the first Texas-grown barley harvest suitable for malting. Balcones was one of the first to purchase the malt back in 2016 and High Plains Texas Single Malt is the result. Available at the Waco-based distillery only beginning June 15, 2019.
