1. Let’s talk whiskey. Please. Then let’s talk copper and heat and fermented gold. Let’s taste what you get when a handful of homebrewers from Texas get together and decide not only to craft their own booze, but to build their own wash stills, heat exchangers and (our favorite) hot liquor tanks. Like an old group of friends swapping the same great stories, Chip Tate and the men behind Balcones Distillery hang out daily with their hammered, patina-ed, crafted-from-the-ground-up equipment. And you can taste it. That glass in your hand? That’s honey, figs, corn, a little sweat (don’t worry), and good ol’ unwillingness to compromise.
