Win a Balcones whisky-tasting

Plus dinner for four at Texas Joe's

To celebrate 4th July this year, we’ve teamed up with award-winning craft distillery Balcones from Waco in Texas and Texas Joe’s in London to offer one lucky reader and three friends the chance to win an evening of delicious Texas whisky and cuisine.

The winner and their friends will enjoy a tasting of the distillery’s infamous and award-winning craft whiskies. This will be followed by dinner at Texas Joe’s, renowned for serving the best brisket in the capital.

Balcones whiskies are second to none in terms of craft and quality with big bold Texan flavours. From Baby Blue, Brimstone and True Blue 100 – all made from blue corn, to No.1 Texas Single Malt – malt whisky with a unique Texas twist, there’s a special dram to suit all palates.

The much-celebrated Texas Joe’s in Bermondsey features delicious traditional BBQ meats, done the Texan way, plus a separate honky-tonk bar complete with jukebox and whisky galore. The menu, from which the winner and their guests can choose, is an authentic Texas affair, with traditional meats and cuts prepared simply with a heavy dose of smoke, salt and pepper. Signature dishes include USDA beef brisket, beef prime rib and pork shoulder, as well as mutton shoulder and ribs.
