In 2008, Balcones Distillery began to make whiskey in Waco, Texas. And over the years they have given us several great small batch releases. One of my favorites is the FR.Oak - a single malt finished in french oak barrels. Goodness, what a gem that was.
On Saturday, November 12, Balcones will be showcasing their new downtown location. I suspect it will be one hell of a good time.
Tickets went on sale on Monday in Waco and sold out fairly quick. Your only chance to grab a ticket to this party will be on Thursday, October 20 at 2PM CST. Set up calendar task and reminders cause these tickets will go fast. Tickets may be purchased at the distillery's website.
Tickets are $10 per person (tax included), You must be 21 or older with valid ID to purchase as the event is strictly 21 and up. Each person may purchase up to 2 tickets but names are required for each ticket and cannot be changed after purchase. Tickets are non-transferrable or refundable. Valid 21+ ID matching the name on the ticket will be required for entry to the event. Essentially, you need to make sure you have all your ducks in a row before you buy.
Maybe, I can beg Winston and the Balcones Family to come up with another bottle of FR.Oak for me! But I need to get tickets first!
