We had the opportunity of touring the incredible Blackland Distillery.  This gem is a full service, upscale cocktail lounge, producing five sophisticated spirits:  Vodka, Gin, Bourbon, Rye Whiskey, and Texas Pecan Brown Sugar Bourbon.  Located in Fort Worth’s Foundry District, just west of downtown, Blackland houses a distillery open for tours, and a tasting room offering the latest craft cocktails, small plates, and event space!  As we entered the stunning bar, we were surrounded by beauty, fragrance, and warm friendly staff eager to share their knowledge, talent, and showcase their fabulous spirits.  After our tour we had a tasting of the five beautifully bottled spirits.  All were outstanding but my senses were heightened as I tasted the Texas Pecan Brown Sugar Bourbon.

Perfectly balanced with a gentle, but identifiable, pecan taste on the front palate, a mouth of just-sweet-enough sugar bourbon as the dominate characteristic, and a smooth finish that leaves you wanting one more sip.  

Fabulous on ice, neat, or mixed in any bourbon cocktail that speaks to you.

However, when tasting, my culinary juices started flowing thinking of all the recipes I could create.  I immediately thought this spirit would be a fabulous addition to my Pecan Pie recipe.  I used light corn syrup, and granulated sugar to not overpower, and let the flavor of the bourbon enhance this traditional dessert recipe.  Top with vanilla bean ice cream for the perfect balance of flavor.

Notes

Tiffy’s Tips
~Pie is done when the internal temperature reaches 200°. I use an instant read thermometer for accuracy. Tap the center surface of pie lightly, it should spring back when done. 
~If pie crust is browning too quickly, cover edges with aluminum foil. 
~You can use your favorite pie crust recipe, frozen, or refrigerated pie crusts.
