More Information

In celebration of mutual Texas heritage and love of whisky, Balcones Distilling have teamed up with Rock & Roll Hall of Famers, ZZ Top to bring you a one-of-a-kind whisky, Tres Hombres.

Sharing the title of the band’s first top 10 chart album released in 1973, Tres Hombres is made using three distinct grains: Roasted Blue Corn, Malted Barley and Rye.

This little ol’ whisky from Texas has been years in the making – coordinating tasting and blending discussions alongside ZZ Top, The Team 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, the had to ask themselves what each player would contribute to the whole: First, blue corn to provide a solid bass layer and an oily body. Next, 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…

Tasting Notes:

Nose: Evaporative and spritely with aromas of honeycrisp apples and buttered pastry; hint of suede and whiteflower honey.

Taste: Sweet and coating with good acidity, brown sugar and red grapes.

Finish: Effervescent with a bit of fresh ginger and sage.
