4 New Texas Bourbons That Should Be On Your Radar Now
Written by Claudia Alarcón
Milam & Greene recently released an exquisite limited edition, grain-to-glass Distillery Edition Straight Bourbon Whiskey, a Certified Texas Whiskey produced in Blanco, Texas.
This first whiskey in the Hill Country Whiskey Series is pot-distilled in a 300-gallon copper still, non-chill filtered, and bottled at barrel proof. Just seven barrels came together to create this one-of-a-kind Texas whiskey, available exclusively through the website and at the distillery while supplies last.
In the last decade, the Lone Star State has experienced a whiskey boom. Ask any bartender, including Caudebec, and they’ll tell you that Texas, particularly Austin and the nearby Texas Hill Country, is home to some of the best craft whiskeys in the nation. And of the growing crop of new distilleries, one of the region’s clear standouts is Milam & Greene: an independent, women-owned whiskey brand.
These five new grain-to-glass releases are proof that the state’s still-young whiskey industry is developing a bold regional profile.
The Lone Star State, the largest in terms of square mileage in the continental U.S. as well as one of its most populous, encompasses a wide range of home-grown spirits. In other words, don’t mess with Texas.
