Making Whiskey Under a Bridge in Waco, Texas

Balcones Distilling moved into a brand-new modern whisky distillery in Waco, Texas in 2016, leaving behind its home in an old welding shop under the 17th Street Bridge a few blocks away. Head Distiller Jared Himstedt helped build the original distillery, and took us back for a tour of the largely hand-built distillery that helped Balcones make its name. We’ll also get a look inside the new state of the art distillery as well.

Editor’s note: Production support for this episode was provided by Balcones. However, as with all of our content, full editorial control remains with WhiskyCast.
