The company, located just an hour from Austin, was the 10th fastest-growing distillery in the U.S. last year. Now, they’re releasing Very Small Batch Bourbon, Milam & Greene’s first new core portfolio product since 2019.
Very Small Batch Bourbon is available across Texas, Canada and 16 other states in stores such as Specs, Total Wine & More and Twin Liquor. It’s also available in independent Austin retailers including The Austin Shaker, Oak Liquor Cabinet and Austin Wine Merchant.
Though the bourbon is a core portfolio product, meaning the company will sell it indefinitely, batches will only be released twice a year in the spring and fall, CEO Heather Greene said.
“People can look forward to this every year, different batches but every year, so then hopefully people will collect and kind of get to know the differences between batches.”
The product also recently won a gold medal in the 2023 San Fransisco World Spirits Competition.
Greene said the upcoming batch of bourbon entered barrels for aging in 2018 and serves as the first distillate to come from their Kentucky distillery. She also said most successful bourbons come from Kentucky as well as Tennessee, so Milam & Greene’s growth is significant not just for the company itself “but for the state of Texas and the bourbon industry.”
“We’re a very small team. There’s literally just like 10 of us, and we work around the clock,” Greene said. “Building a small business is really tough. It’s tough fighting against the big guys, your scalability, labor market, and for me, it feels like a great little success story.”
