What happens when a handful of Texas homebrewers decide to not only craft their own spirits, but also to make their own copper and fermented gold wash stills, heat exchangers and hot liquor tanks? Chip Tate and the men of Balcones Distillery distill daily with their hammered, patinaed equipment, crafted from the ground up. The result is some of the best whisky around.
