    Unique Flavor and Aroma

    I made bread with this flour last week and it was so good. There is a unique taste and a hint of cinnamon to the aroma. If I hadn’t read the reviews, I would have been very surprises. I’ll be making more loaves and ordering more flour. Try it, it’s great! Oh yeah, toasted bread made with this flour makes AWESOME peanut butter toast. Wow, match made in heaven

    Amazing Grains

    Great. We have just run out of blue corn meal and can’t wait to get more. Everything we have tried has been amazing. No comparison to any store product including Whole Foods, Sprouts, etc. BSM is a true treasure.

    Beautiful taste!

    Adding this to my sourdough bread makes a very special loaf!

    Works like all-purpose!

    I've used this flour in 2 recipes in place of all-purpose flour and the results were surprisingly good. The fine grind must be the trick to light and lofty products.

    Will not bother with any other flour

    This is a general review of Barton Springs Mill, not Rouge de Bordeaux. After trying out just some of the varieties of flour on offer, I know I won't bother with bread flour from the supermarket any more. The selection can be a little overwhelming at first blush -- I didn't know there were that many varieties of wheat. That really poses no problem though, since the staff is _very_ knowledgeable and helpful.

    If you're having trouble finding them, they are just behind Treaty Oak Distillery on Fitzhugh Rd.

    They are just getting started at the new location, and I'm looking forward to what they do with their brand new space.
