Distillery Edition Batch Three Straight Bourbon Whiskey, a Certified Texas Whiskey produced in Blanco, Texas, is now available exclusively at the Milam & Greene Whiskey distillery and select retailers in Texas while supplies last. Like previous batches, it is pot-distilled by master distiller, Marlene Holmes, in a 300-gallon copper still, is non-chill filtered, and bottled at barrel proof. This extremely limited-edition bourbon is a batch of only four barrels.
We created a whiskey with an exuberant character that appeals to adventurous whiskey drinkers while retaining the classic bourbon personality of sweetness and spice. It is made with Texas-grown corn, and the entire process from mashing, fermenting, distilling, to aging is done on-site at the distillery in Blanco. The mash bill for Distillery Edition Batch Three — 70% corn, 22% malted rye, and 8% malted barley and proprietary yeast recipe — has remained consistent for each of the three batches. What sets Batch Three apart is the impact of the Texan terroir on the barrels as they age for three years with the final months of aging in 2022 punctuated by exceptional heat. It’s a “Texas heat finished” whiskey and this is our most robust and feisty Distillery Edition yet. It is hand-bottled at barrel proof (56.94% ABV / 113.88 Proof) to show off the intricacies that the distilling team painstakingly nurtured along the whiskey-making process.
STRAIGHT BOURBON WHISKEY
This 2021 release is only the second in our prized and extremely limited-edition Certified Texas Whiskey series. Distilled by our master distiller Marlene K. Holmes on a charming 300-gallon copper pot still in the heart of Texas Hill Country, this expression is not for the faint of heart. The mash bill of 70% corn, 22% malted rye, and 8% malted barley combined with barrel aging in the Texan terroir make this the most robust, spicy, and feisty spirit of the Milam & Greene range of whiskies. Only nine barrels were blended to create this stunner. Whiskey lovers will relish the incredible notes of caramel, cherry, and honey wrapped in a whisper of grain and the warmth of Texas sunshine. As with all our whiskies, this bottle is non-chill filtered for rich texture. It is hand-bottled at barrel proof (57.5% ABV / 115 Proof) to showcase all the complexities that the distilling team meticulously cultivated along the whiskey-making process.
