Introducing Mirador Eclipse

Our reflection on the sacred trance driven out of a solar eclipse inspires our newest release: Balcones Mirador Eclipse Texas Single Malt. An eclipse is the loss of our sun, yet it signifies new beginnings. We can anticipate an eclipse, but we cannot change it. They are out of our control - exquisite and specific to each moment and each place. This is exactly what we worked to reflect in our newest American Single Malt.


tasting notes

ON THE NOSE, sun-kissed notes of poised pressed flowers & clover hay are engulfed by mango meringue & pineapple gum drops, while dense notes of almond biscotti and honeydew rind round out the bunch.

ON THE PALATE, blush lemon custard & white chocolate raspberry tart neighbor more reserved notes of guava pound cake and prairie sage, before a long and confident finish of dried thyme and honeyed jasmine tea.

our process

Historically, Mirador highlights Golden Promise Malted Barley matured in refill casks. We do this to showcase the subtle grain nuance and delicate fruit we often see during our double batch copper pot distillations. Mirador Eclipse takes a step further in exploring Balcones' unique dual yeast fermentations.


For this release, we substituted our standard ale yeast for two strains of yeast: a red wine and a rosé yeast alongside our house malt whisky yeast. This process yielded soft, blush red berry and fruits-of-the-forest notes that our single malts typically don't readily showcase.


Matured in a variety of first, second, and third-fill used Kentucky bourbon casks from 4 to 5 years before reaching the blending table, this American Single Malt balances fruit, grain, and the density of palate.
