Whisky Advocate: Balcones Founder Chip Tate Speaks Freely

October 21, 2014

For the first time since an August 8 temporary restraining order, Balcones founder Chip Tate can talk about the legal battle at the Texas distillery. 

He’s been under a strict media gag order while the 170th Texas State District Court sorts out the disagreement between Tate and his investors, who allege that Tate refused to attend board meetings and even threatened to shoot board chairman Greg Allen. Allen’s legal team changed the terms of the temporary restraining order, Tate says, and he spoke with Whisky Advocate writer Fred Minnick in this Q+A.
