Ben Milam Texas Whiskey

The San Francisco World Spirits Competition is held every spring to commemorate distilleries both large and small on a grand scale. Awards range from Best in Show to Best Vodka to a series of Best Whiskies. There were plenty of standouts this year, however, for the second year in a row now a small distillery from Blanco, Texas won Double Gold for their bourbon. And odds are, this is the first time you’re hearing about them.

The distillery in question here is newly-founded Ben Milam Whiskey – located in the wild west that is Texas Hill Country – and currently offering three spirits for the taking (a single barrel bourbon, barrel proof bourbon, and straight rye). Not to be outdone, their rye even won silver last year as well. Production is still a bit limited at the time of publishing so be sure to drop them a line if interested in scooping up some for yourself.
