Balcones Tres Hombres

$79.99

Brand ZZ Top
This little ol’ whisky from Texas has been years in the making – coordinating tasting and blending discussions alongside ZZ Top virtually over Zoom. We set out to create a whisky with the foundational grains of Balcones – Blue Corn, Malted Barley, and Rye. In designing a whisky from disparate mashbills, we had to ask ourselves what each player would contribute to the whole: First, we went back to our roots and started with blue corn to provide a solid bass layer and an oily body. Next, we introduced malted barley matured in virgin oak, for a soft-toned mid-palate and a stone fruit heavy finish, and finally, rye, to deliver a bright spicy top note to the whole ensemble.


Three distinct whiskies, and three distinct band members – married together to create a unique whisky that was brought together in collaboration with the members of ZZ Top. The sum of its parts tells a compelling story, just like the iconic tunes of that little ol’ band from Texas…
