BOURBON LOVE! ♥

To Bourbon, with love.

Bourbon is an exciting shift for many existing wine lovers. Not only does Bourbon tasting often mimic the comforts of the wine drinking process, there's the added fun of possible cocktails! In addition, wine drinkers might be interested in the growing number of Bourbon options finished in wine casks! Fascinating.

This is our ode to the beloved Bourbon. Over the years we've seen a major surge in Bourbon offerings and you'll find varied selections made all over the country.

Who: Heather Greene - CEO, PARTNER, MASTER BLENDER

World-renowned whiskey expert, author and master blender, Heather Greene, leads the Provision Spirits business with direct oversight of product development, including blending her namesake whiskey, Milam & Greene. She joined the team as a blending and marketing consultant in 2018 and quickly transitioned to the role of CEO in 2019. After spending years on the road working and writing for distilleries, Heather decided to “pack it up” and throw her experience behind the group in Blanco, Texas after falling in love with their passion, synergistic love of music (Heather is also a musician), and whiskey-making skills.

Before joining the company, Greene was the first woman to serve on the Scotch Malt Whisky Society tasting panel in Edinburgh, Scotland, served as an award-winning Scotch whisky ambassador, and is a current judge on prestigious tasting panels such as the American Craft Spirits Association and the ISCW in London, as well as the author of New York Times shortlisted Whiskey Distilled, A Populist Guide to the Water of Life. Greene was recently inducted into the inaugural class of the Order of the Writ. She has written about whiskey for publications such as Eater and CNBC. She appeared nationally on media outlets such as CBS This Morning, Bloomberg News, Fox, The Food Network, and MSNBC.

What: Milam and Greene Whiskey
Featured Spirits - Triple Cask Straight Bourbon & Straight Rye Whiskey

triple cask

Each bottle of Milam & Greene Triple Cask is a batch of three hand selected straight bourbon whiskies: 2-year-old premium Texas bourbon for a pop of spice married with 3 to 4-year-old Tennessee whiskey for vanillas and fruits and 10 to 11-year-old Tennessee whiskey for structure and tannins.

port rye

Milam & Greene Port Finished Rye Whiskey is brought from Indiana to Texas where it is batched in the Blanco rickhouse and finished in old Port wine casks from Portugal. Some casks take longer than others, so the expert team tastes the whiskey finishing the in Port wine casks regularly to determine when optimal flavors are achieved.

COURSE DETAILS:
Dessert wines is perhaps the oldest style of wine. Pre-dating biblical times and modern fermentation techniques, dessert wines were made around the world from a magnitude of different grapes. From muscat, to grenache, to furmint these wines have been creating versatile, luscious styles that not only have a place at the dessert table but all throughout the meal complimenting a myriad of cooking styles and dishes. In this class we will examine major styles of dessert wines including production methods, historical relevance, geographical locations, grape varietals, sugar scales and wine assessment, serving techniques, and pairings.

A few highlights include Champagne, Tokaji, Sauternes, Sherry, Banyuls and Maury, Chenin Blanc, Riesling, and Ice Wine. Also included will be the various styles of muscat including Australian examples, Samos, Constantia, Moscato d'Asti, and Muscat d'Rivesaltes.
