One of my favorite publications is Edible Austin. They’re a local resource for everything food-wise. I had the pleasure of working with them last December as they hosted Eat Local Week, a huge charity event that generates awareness about local growers of produce, local brewers, distillers, and everything organic in Austin. Occasionally, I get the pleasure of shooting for them for their articles. However, this last opportunity turned out to be more than a pleasure because after seeing my photos, they decided to change the cover over to my shot!
This time around, Edible Austin asked me to make a trip up to Waco, TX to photograph Chip Tate and his whiskey at Balcones Distillery. More of a wine lover, I didn’t think I had enough experience to really appreciate hand-crafted whiskey made from 100% Hopi blue corn. But I was completely blown away. A little sweet, sort of strong, and extremely smooth, their line of Baby Blue whiskey has quickly become my favorite drink. I could never do the article justice, so you’ll just have to head over to Whole Foods and pick up your copy of the new Fall issue of Edible Austin Magazine. Cheers!
