Milam & Greene Castle Hill Batch 2

Milam & Greene Whiskey is introducing The Castle Hill Series Batch Two, the second release of its limited-edition batch of 13-year-old hand-selected straight bourbon whiskies bottled at barrel proof.

The Castle Hill Series celebrates the art of batching well-aged casks, one of the many methods Milam & Greene enlists to create its range of whiskies. Just 26 vintage barrels were married to create this whiskey, making it the most limited release from the distillery that was recently lauded for its “Best in Show” whiskey at The American Craft Spirits Association competition.

The Castle Hill Series carries the oldest age statement in the Milam & Greene family of whiskies, and each batch includes the distillery’s most exclusive casks. The series is named for the historic Texas Military Institute, also known as “The Castle,” in Austin, Texas. While the Milam & Greene distillery operations and warehousing are in Blanco, Texas, The Castle is home to Heather Greene’s blending lab, and its old-world elegance serves as an inspiration for the Milam & Greene CEO and master blender.

Greene is renowned for her exceptional whiskey blending skills, and The Castle Hill Series showcases her ability to select the right casks to blend to develop complex flavors. Greene honed her whiskey blending skills while evaluating Scotch whisky for the Scotch Malt Whisky society in Scotland, as well as while working with numerous distilleries around the globe before bringing her talent to Milam & Greene in 2018.

Under Greene’s direction, whiskey blending is essential to creating core Milam & Greene whiskies including the Triple Cask Straight Bourbon Whiskey and Port Finished Straight Rye Whiskey.
