Texas’ Milam & Greene Whiskey Brings Forth Its First Limited Edition Whiskey
Written by Nino Kilgore-Marchetti of the Whiskey Wash
You only get one first batch.
“You only get one first batch,” said Osborne in a prepared statement. “It was an exciting time to fire up the cookers and the still to start making whiskey in a completely new distillery in summer 2017. Right from the get-go, we set out to create special whiskey that would stand on its own alongside some of the finest bourbons in the world. After three years in the making, the wait is over for thirsty whiskey fans.
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.
