Milam & Greene Whiskey Unveils its First Bottled in Bond Straight Bourbon Whiskey

BLANCO, Texas (May 8, 2024) — Milam & Greene Whiskey announced that its limited Bottled in Bond Straight Bourbon Whiskey is now available through the Milam & Greene website and will begin hitting the shelves at fine retailers across the country soon. This new release emphasizes Milam & Greene’s commitment to quality that whiskey fans expect from the boutique distillery of premium whiskeys. The Bottled in Bond Straight Bourbon Whiskey, the distillery’s latest addition to its esteemed year-round whiskey portfolio is expected to be a highly coveted bourbon.   

Upholding Tradition: The Bottled in Bond Designation

Only a small fraction of the whiskeys produced in the United States adhere to the criteria for the highly regulated Bottled in Bond Act designation. In order to protect the integrity, quality, and authenticity of aged whiskey in the U.S., The Bottled in Bond Act of 1897 dictates that anyone using this designation must meet the following criteria: the spirit must be produced in a single distilling season by a single distillery, it must mature in a U.S. bonded warehouse for a minimum of four years, and the aged spirits must be bottled at exactly 50% ABV / 100 Proof. Only by adhering to this meticulous process can it be called a Bottled in Bond whiskey, making this style truly specialized.  

Milam & Greene’s Signature Touch in Bottled in Bond Bourbon

To produce this Bottled in Bond bourbon, the Milam & Greene team used its signature mashbill featuring malted rye, which offers a richer texture and a slight nuttiness, and its proprietary yeast recipe that provides balance. The resulting whiskey has richness and depth that is characteristic of each Milam & Greene whiskey, whether created in the copper pot stills in Blanco, Texas, or with the collaborative partner in Bardstown, Kentucky.

Making Milam & Greene Bottled in Bond Straight Bourbon Whiskey

Throughout the year, the Milam & Greene whiskey team travels to Bardstown, Kentucky to distill on continuous column stills using our people, proprietary mashbill of 70% corn, 22% malted rye, and 8% malted barley, and unique yeast strain to achieve a balanced and well-rounded flavor profile for its whiskey. This 2024 inaugural bottling of Bottled in Bond Bourbon was distilled by the Milam & Greene whiskey team in Kentucky, in Autumn 2019, and rested in char-4 oak barrels in a U.S. bonded warehouse. After careful aging and monitoring, in the spring of 2024, 72 barrels were selected and brought to Blanco, Texas for batching and hand-bottling at exactly 100 Proof.
