Our Whiskey is Now
Distributed Across the Country

Clearly this has been an incredibly challenging year for craft distilleries, and it is no different for us. The bad news is we have fewer avenues to get our whiskies in the hands of our fans in Texas with the closure of our taproom and bars and restaurants in the state. The good news is that we were able to set up new channels to get our whiskey to people in several other places where it is in demand outside of Texas. 
We’re incredibly excited to share the news that we are expanding the distribution of Milam & Greene Whiskey across the country!  Our Milam & Greene Triple Cask Straight Bourbon, Milam & Greene Port-Finished Rye, and Milam & Greene Straight Single Barrel Bourbon are hitting shelves in California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, New York, Washington D.C., and Wisconsin now and over the coming weeks. Please let your friends around the country know about our whiskey and invite them to look for it at their favorite stores.   
Some of you may ask if we have enough whiskey for all of the thirsty folks around the country. Yes! Yes, we do. Under the direction of our master distiller, Marlene Holmes, we distill using a 300-gallon copper pot still in Blanco, Texas as well as in continuous stills in Marlene’s home state of Kentucky. The team travels to Kentucky to distill using our own mash bill, yeast recipe, and distillation processes. Then we age our whiskey in oak casks in both Kentucky and Texas. In addition to distilling on-site and off-site, the team blends, batches, sources, finishes, and hand-bottles bourbon and rye whiskey to age to maturity in the unique Texas climate — the only craft distillery in the USA that openly embraces all these elements to make stunning whiskies.

Our whiskies are available in fine retail shops in 10 states. You can find us using this tool on our website. In Texas, feel free to order our whiskey online and pick it up at the distillery.
