Balcones’ Downtown Debut Coming November 12; Collectible Special Editions Available

Downtown Debut

It is with great excitement that we are officially announcing our “Downtown Debut” at the new Balcones Distillery, right here in Waco, TX! Come get a sneak peek of the facility before our tour program goes online at the end of November.

In addition to a self-guided tour of Balcones, attendees will also receive a complimentary sampling of new special edition whiskies, bottled to commemorate the opening of our distillery. And, as a reward to our incredibly patient friends and fans, these special editions will be available to purchase at the end of your tour. Finish off your experience with live music from Lomelda and J. Wagner, food from Milo Biscuit Company, Alba’s Pupusas and Heritage Creamery, and pours of Baby Blue and ‘1’ Texas Single Malt for $10 each. The event will feature Austin’s popular Quick Draw Photobooth and cigars will be available from Don’s Humidor.

As a special thank you for the local community, a limited number of presale tickets will go on sale in Waco on Monday, October 17 starting at 3 pm*. Presale tickets are only available for purchase in person at the distillery. The distillery will be open for ticket sales only from 3 – 6 pm October 17, 18 and 19. General ticket sales will go online at 2pm on October 20. Visit or our Facebook page on the day of for more information.

Regular tours will begin soon, too, so if you can’t make this event there will be opportunities to see the new Balcones before the end of the year. Please follow us on Facebook or join our email list to be updated on public tours.

This day has been a long time coming and we’re beyond thrilled to finally share what we’ve built with you. It is a pivotal time not just for our company, but for our community as well. We’re proud to make whiskies that are world class, but our Waco roots run deep.
