Milam & Greene Whiskey Launch
Disclosure: I attended the Austin Milam & Greene Whiskey Launch and received free drinks, food, and merchandise. All opinions are my own.
Two new whiskeys have been born in The Lone Star State and they are stellar. A couple years in the making, with Provision Spirits’ Ben Milam Whiskey out of Tennessee and Kentucky, the flagship brand Milam & Greene Whiskey was meticulously distilled, blended, and batched in the Texas Hill Country. Milam & Greene is a “True American Whiskey with a Texas Heart.”
A zealous mission of Kentucky whiskey veteran Marsha Milam, whiskey author and master blender Heather Greene, master distiller Marlene Holmes, [that’s some serious female power and a lot of experience!], and very talented chief brewer Jordan Osborne, Milam & Greene has created a Triple Cask Straight Bourbon and a Straight Rye. Both are delicious, with unique nuances and personalities that truly put them at the top of the game. Enjoy neat, on the rocks, or in a tasty cocktail…it’s all good! Each stunning bottle is carefully filled and hand labeled. And both price points under $50 makes them unparalleled in my opinion.
The Milam & Greene Whiskey Launch across Texas began last week and is being delivered and shelved as I type. You don’t have to be a connoisseur to enjoy these delightful spirits. And if you are a connoisseur, I think you will be very pleased with the amount of dedication and details that were put into developing these magnificent whiskies. Find your bottles at your local Spec’s, Twin Liqours, and other fine retailers. Milam & Greene can also be found in select bars and restaurants. Click HERE to locate the whiskies near you.
Congratulations to all the hard working, outstanding, and talented people at Milam & Greene! A rockstar cast offering libations with quality fit for royalty. Cheers! A sincere thanks to them for allowing me to enjoy in the celebration. Oh what a night!

More about the whiskies from the source:
Milam & Greene Triple Cask Straight Bourbon Whiskey
The new flagship bourbon is made from 70% Texas corn, 22% Pacific Northwest malted rye from Oregon and Washington, 8% Wyoming barley, and our proprietary yeast recipe from Kentucky and Texas. Each bottle of Milam & Greene Triple Cask is a batch of three hand selected straight bourbon whiskies: 2-year-old premium Texas bourbon for a pop of spice married with 3 to 4-year-old Tennessee whiskey for vanillas and fruits, and 10 to 11-year-old Tennessee whiskey for structure and tannins. It is then proofed to taste and bottled on site. This bourbon has a deep golden color, along with refined and elegant aromas with pops of vanilla, floral and spice. The palate is creamy and soft, surprisingly smooth for a 94-proof spirit, and has a medium warm finish, with structure and tannins.
Milam & Greene Straight Rye Whiskey Finished in Port Wine Casks
Milam & Greene Port Finished Rye Whiskey is brought from Indiana to Texas where it is batched in the Blanco rickhouse and finished in old Port wine casks from Portugal. The Texan sun influences the rate and strength of flavor imparted into the whiskey. Some casks take longer than others, so the expert team tastes the whiskey finishing the in the Port wine casks regularly to determine when optimal flavors are achieved. Casks are then batched together and proofed before bottling. The result is a gorgeous ruby colored rye with luscious aromas of cinnamon, chocolate, dark fruits such as black currants and blackberries. Robust flavors are carried in a rich, velvety whiskey with a long warm finish.
