A super versatile Rye with a Port-y twist.

Once upon a time, the entrepreneur Marsha Milam visited a Kentucky warehouse and fell in love with the elusive art of Whiskey-making. She partnered with veteran Master Blender Heather Greene, Master Distiller Marlene Holmes, and Master Brewer Jordan Osborne who brought 60 years of combined experience to the table. The team kickstarted their distilling operation in the Texas Hill Country and the rest is history. They have a 300-gallon copper-pot still in the Texas Hill Country, plus column stills in Bardstown, Kentucky. They source some of their Whiskeys, but some are distilled on-site. Their spirits are aged in the city of Blanco in Texas and bottled and labeled by hand.

Milam & Greene Port Cask Finished Rye - Flaviar Cask Strength Edition starts with an Indiana Rye that’s brought down to Texas to their warehouse. There, it’s finished in old Port Wine casks under the Texan sun that also leaves a mark on the juice. Each cask is individually tasted multiple times by the team to decide when the flavors are ready. The casks are batched together and cut to proof before bottling to deliver beautifully rich and velvety flavors of chocolate, dark fruits, and berries to your Whiskey glass. Savor neat or on the rocks but don’t hesitate to use this one in craft cocktails, either.

Dog Dogson's Smartass corner
Character Dogson
George Washington famously loved his Rye Whiskey. In fact, after he served as the first president of the United States, he returned to his farm at Mount Vernon and started a small Rye distillery of his own.
A decade ago there were only 6 brands of Rye Whiskey hailing from Kentucky, nowadays there are more than 50!
Rye - think of it as Bourbon's edgier cousin. It’s known for what many call a spicy or fruity flavor. Rye (distilled from at least 51% Rye) is not on the sweet side and tends to have a spicier body. That’s why the character of a cocktail made from Rye, instead of Bourbon, is drier.
Rye sparked the first revolution after the American Independence. It was called the Whiskey Rebellion, and it arose when the government tried to tax Whiskey and enforce the taxation on distillers. The lesson here? Don't mess with a Whiskey drinker's dram.
