Never Delay Opening a Bottle of Milam & Greene Whiskey

Never Delay Opening a Bottle of Milam & Greene Whiskey

There’s a quote about never delaying to open a bottle of whiskey and it accurately describes our experience with Milam & Greene Whiskey. Although relatively new, this craft whiskey brand is becoming one of the fastest-growing whiskey brands in the U.S. Three of their offerings, the award-winning Milam & Greene Triple Cask Straight Bourbon, Milam & Greene Port-Finished Rye, and Milam & Greene Distillery Edition Single Barrel Straight Bourbon are hitting shelves in California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, New York, Washington D.C., and Wisconsin now. Hitting stores just in time for the holiday gifting season.

Never Delay Opening a Bottle of Milam & Greene Whiskey

What better way than the gift of a great craft whiskey to help someone de-stress while living through the holidays during a pandemic. By now you’re studying these whiskey bottles closely; which means you may notice these are not Kentucky whiskeys and you’re correct. While Kentucky has a long, rich whiskey history, they’re not the only source of great American whiskeys. Milam & Greene Whiskey is proof that a Texas craft whiskey can make you detour away from Kentucky and Tennessee; especially when it has a Kentucky connection.

Never Delay Opening a Bottle of Milam & Greene Whiskey

Under the direction of master distiller, Marlene Holmes, Milam & Greene Whiskey distills using a 300-gallon copper pot still in Blanco, Texas as well as in continuous stills in Holmes’ home state of Kentucky. The team travels to Kentucky to distill using its own mash bill, yeast recipe, and distillation processes. The whiskey is matured in both Kentucky and Texas. In addition to distilling on-site and off-site, the team blends, batches, sources, finishes, and hand-bottles bourbon and rye whiskey to age to maturity in the unique Texas climate. The only craft distillery in the USA that openly embraces all these elements to make stunning whiskies. The distillery produces the three above mentioned Milam & Greene whiskies, which until now were only available in Texas. Join us as we explore these grain to glass whiskies created using the distinct processes of the great distillers of the past. Today we give them a proper nationwide welcome:

Milam & Greene Triple Cask Straight Bourbon Whiskey, $44.99

 Milam & Greene Triple Cask Straight Bourbon Whiskey

This rich made from Texas corn, Pacific Northwest malted rye from Oregon and Washington, Wyoming barley, and their proprietary yeast recipe from Kentucky and Texas. Each bottle of Milam & Greene Triple Cask is a batch of three hand-selected straight bourbon whiskies: a 2-year-old premium Texas bourbon for a pop of spice; married with a 3 to 4-year-old Tennessee whiskey for vanillas and fruits; and a 10 to 11-year-old Tennessee whiskey for structure and tannins. It is then proofed to be tasted and bottled on site. This bourbon has a deep golden color, along with refined and elegant aromas with pops of vanilla, floral, and spice. The palate is creamy and soft, surprisingly smooth for a 94-proof spirit. It has a medium warm finish with structure and tannins.

What’s the best way to enjoy this whiskey? Try the above M&G MANHATTAN, created by award-winning USBG Mixologist, Kelsey Caudebec.

2 oz. Milam & Greene Triple Cask Bourbon
½ oz. Luxardo
½ oz. sweet vermouth
2 dashes Angostura bitters
1 dash peach bitters
Stir with ice. Strain onto fresh ice in an old-fashioned glass. Garnish with a lemon twist

Milam & Greene Distillery Edition Single Barrel Straight Bourbon, $121.99

Milam & Greene Single Barrel Straight Bourbon

The hand-selected and evaluated Single Barrel Straight Bourbon has the discerning whiskey drinker in mind before bottling by Milam & Green’s crack whiskey team. No two casks are exactly the same for this one-of-a-kind, small-batch Texas whiskey. Holmes, Greene, and head brewer, Jordan Osborne, look for whiskies that demonstrate elegance and personality. Each year the team selects single barrels that include gems found around the U.S. in addition to their own grain-to-glass casks. This year’s lot, a deeply flavored bourbon previously sold only in Texas, comes from Tennessee and has already won numerous double gold medals in international competitions.

What’s the best way to enjoy this whiskey? We loved it neat with a fat ice cube and with a splash of water to proof it down.

Milam & Greene Port Finished Straight Rye Whiskey, $49.99

Milam & Greene Port Finished Straight Rye Whiskey

Port wine fans, we’ve found your perfect whiskey. This Double Gold winner at the 2020 San Francisco World Spirits Competition is a gorgeous ruby-colored whiskey with luscious aromas of cinnamon, chocolate, and dark fruits such as black currants and blackberries. Its robust flavors are carried in a rich, velvety whiskey with a long warm finish. The casks used are brought from Indiana to Texas where this liquid gold is first batched in the Blanco rickhouse and then finished in old Port wine casks from Portugal. Because some casks take longer than others, these are meticulously curated and vatted for consistency, and monitored for flavor. The casks are then batched together and proofed before bottling. The Texan sun and varying humidity levels also influence the rate and strength of flavor imparted into this 94-proof whiskey, making this a tricky whiskey to produce.

What’s the best way to enjoy this whiskey? The boldly flavored HILL COUNTRY HIGHBALL is perfect. It too was created by USBG Mixologist, Kelsey Caudebec.

2 oz. Milam & Greene Port Finished Rye
1 oz. Averna or other rich Amaro
¾ oz. fresh lemon juice
1½ oz. ginger beer
Shake with ice and serve on ice in a Collins glass. Top with ginger beer. Garnish with fresh blackberries.

Whether you’re a fan of classic or specialty whiskey, these Blanco, Texan-bred whiskies are sure to delight all during and after the holiday season. Keep an eye out for Milam & Greene at your local alcohol retailers in California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, New York, Washington D.C., and Wisconsin. Happy sipping.

We’re welcoming the fall season with lots of deliciousness. The cooler season brings to mind harvest time and when we think of harvests, we’re reminded of the jams and fruit spreads that are ready to eat. While we can’t go traipsing through orchards or have access to farmer’s markets, we have the next best thing; delicious jams we’ve enjoyed since we were first introduced to them six years ago – Crofter’s Organic Jams and Fruit Spreads.

Bokksu Box Brings Unique Japanese Snacks To American Consumers

Bokksu Box Brings Unique Japanese Snacks To American Consumers

Anyone who loves to travel knows how easy it is to fall in love with a different country’s food. You discover all kinds of snacks and goodies while you’re there, helping make your trip feel truly special. When you get back on your shores, however, you’re left feeling a deep disappointment after you realize that none of those treats are in the international aisle at your grocery store.

Danny Taing had this exact experience after living in Japan for many years. He fell in love with Japanese delicacies, as well as the community that formed around them. When he returned to America and could no longer enjoy those tasty treats and the culture surrounding them, he became one of the 400 million entrepreneurs around the world by starting a monthly subscription box for Japanese snacks.

Bokksu Box Brings Unique Japanese Snacks To American Consumers

Taing’s company is called Bokksu and its tight-knit team curates a box of gourmet Japanese snacks every month. Bokksu sources these snacks from artisan makers in Japan, so when you get a Bokksu box you know that you’ve supported local businesses in Japan and not international corporations. The company even partners with the artisans in Japan to create new Japanese snacks exclusively for its customers. This authentic touch, combined with the deliciousness of the snacks, has spurned the success of Bokksu, which sold half a million snacks to customers in more than 75 countries in its first two years of business.

To give customers a wide diversity in flavor and experience, the snack box revolves around a different theme every month. When a customer orders their first box, however, the team at Bokksu will handpick a variety of snacks that represents the four seasons in Japan so that you can get an authentic taste of the country.

Bokksu Box Brings Unique Japanese Snacks To American Consumers

Japanese snacks are made with high-quality ingredients. This is unlike many common American snacks, the unhealthy and processed ingredients in which have contributed to obesity-related conditions, such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease, which are among the leading causes of preventable death. The high-quality, richly-flavored ingredients make the treats you can find in a Bokksu box ranging from traditional Japanese desserts, known as wagashi, to modern confections.

When you open up a Bokksu box, you’ll find a variety of sweet and savory treats. These include mochi, edamame senbei, red bean doughnuts, matcha chocolate stick cakes, rice crackers, and so much more. If you find a snack that you can’t get enough of, you can shop a la carte items at the Bokksu Market so that you can stock up on your favorites.

Fall Beauty Musts: 5 Skincare Products With Unique Twists

Fall Beauty Musts: 5 Skincare Products With Unique Twists

It’s a new season, so you know what that means? New skincare! Much like we change our clothing every season, so do must we change our skincare, and today we’re highlighting five skincare products that wow you with their unique capabilities and ingredients. Trust us when we say, your skin will love you. As we all know, changes in seasons, temperature, etc affects your skin; so you need products that will provide as many benefits as possible and these do.

Fall Beauty Musts: 5 Skincare Products With Unique Twists

Today, we present the incredible skincare products from Payaru Skincare, Ollie Belle, Elevé Cosmetics, Dazey CBD, and PhilanthroBee. From skin-softening facial scrubs to invisible blemish-fighting barriers and a moisturizing sunscreen, these five skincare products are a must for the changing season.

Payaru Skincare, $12.00

Payaru Skincare Mung Bean Facial Scrub

Payaru introduces a different type of facial scrub, one powered by the mighty mung bean. If you didn’t know, mung bean is great for acne-prone skin. It also hydrates, brightens, and is a great natural, anti-aging solution. We fell completely in love after one use. We still can’t stop touching our face; it feels buttery soft for hours afterward. The way it sloughs off the dead skin and leaves behind total softness… it’s incredible!

Each of Payaru Skincare products contains only 3 or 4 natural ingredients, all of which are non-toxic, vegan, and biodegradable. These two scrubs are products you can trust and feel comfortable putting on your delicate face. Payaru sees the crushed mung bean not only as a gentle exfoliant but one that enhances the health of your skin. As a bonus, it saves freshwater and ocean life from added microplastics in the process.

Ollie Belle, $26.95

Ollie Belle Acne and Blemish Barriers

It’s time to say goodbye to unwanted blemishes. Covertly! Ollie Belle is unlike any other dot acne treatment on the market. Not only is it FDA-registered and produced in the US, but Ollie Belle also offers you medical-grade acne care at an affordable price. Their dots are flexible, durable, and ultra-thin. No one will know what’s under your makeup. We love that Ollie Belle’s acne and blemish barriers work with our everyday needs so you feel like your most confident whether you’re lightly painted or wearing a full beat.

Elevé Cosmetics Vitamin Sea, $49.00

Elevé Cosmetics Vitamin Sea

No matter the season, sunscreen is an important addition to your beauty arsenal. The Elevé Cosmetics Vitamin Sea mineral antioxidant sunscreen with SPF 28 is a thoughtfully curated sunscreen made for everyday protection. Not only will it help prevent sun damage and skin cancer, but it will also leave you with a healthy, moisturized glow thanks to turmeric, shea butter, and vitamins C and E.

Dazey CBD, $45.00 – $108.00

Dazey CBD

We’re all been enjoying the calming effects of CBD beauty products. That enjoyment should definitely continue into the cooler seasons. Known for its anti-inflammatory and moisturizing properties, CBD is great for reducing redness, irritation, and uneven skin tone. Dazey is a natural beauty and wellness brand that believes in the power of hemp and it shows in their wonderful products.

Their full-spectrum CBD oil is tested by a third-party lab and contains absolutely zero preservatives, sweeteners, or added flavors. It counteracts free radicals, protects against environmental stressors, and nourishes the skin with vitamins and fatty acids. Our lives may not be completely stress-free, but your kin should feel and be stress-free.

PhilanthroBee, $38.00

PhilanthroBee BeeCause Body Bar

One thing we don’t like about the colder seasons is the way it leaves our skin feeling – tight, flaky, itchy, or angrily inflamed. The last thing you want is to layer chemically treated thick creams on top of your already irritated skin. That’s why PhilanthroBee’s BeeCause Body Bar works with your body heat to melt into your skin. Using the power of natural bee products, it soothes, replenishes moisture, promotes skin health, and protects your skin against damage.

Their ingredients are simple. Organic raw honey, unrefined beeswax, and bee propolis are harvested right from their hives in California and are medicinal by nature. They penetrate deep into your skin for lasting moisture and then create a bacteria-fighting barrier to lock in hydration and protect your skin from irritation. With its melty texture and creamy color, the BeeCause Body Bar feels like it just bee-longs on your skin.

We hope you add a few or all of these five skincare products to your fall beauty arsenal. Their unique twists will benefit your skin greatly and help you survive the subtle and dramatic effects the change in season has on your skin.

Tenth Street Hats: A Collection of the Best Fall Hats for Women

We love hats, the variety of styles, the way it completes a look, and the way it can change your look. For as long as we can remember, we’ve struggled to find a hat that both fits and looks good on our heads. Thanks to the combination of big heads and a lot of hair, finding those gems are few and far between. Even now we own hats that we’ve never worn. We love the idea of hats and love to see people wearing them, while we cursed our follically blessed and larger than most heads. But we have discovered hope in the form of Tenth Street Hats, a range of designer hats made in the old way and sold in a new way. We’ve finally found a hat company with very chic hats that we look good it (and they fit).

This fall, Tenth Streets Hats offers the following women’s styles: Fedoras, Fishermen, Cloche, Safari, Berets, Safari, Western, and much more. The new season means new styles, new fashions, and new accessories. We fell (pun intended) head over heels in love with the Cloche silhouette, particularly the Sciacca by Scala (featured below in Blush; a perfect way to rock Pantone’s 16-1511 Rose Tan). This fashionable and functional felt wool hat features a feminine bow detail at the back and is crushable, so it retains its shape when packed. Other favorites, also by Scala, are the Katie Ann Cloche, which features spiral studded detailing; and the Tula, a pleated crown style in boiled wool. The Seville by Brooklyn, an elegant, wool felt Gaucho (boater-style) hat with a leather band and bow.

Fab Slabs Antibacterial Cutting Boards

Fab Slabs Antibacterial Cutting Boards: The World’s Most Hygienic Boards

We love to cook; but a busy life of work, writing, and attending events have limited cooking to mostly weekends. Cue a global pandemic and our pots, pans, and kitchen appliances have gotten more use than ever. One kitchen item getting an insane amount of use is our cutting board. After the continuous use and washing, our previous cutting board didn’t look so appealing anymore. We began pondering just how sanitary was it in the first place. The image of micro food particles, dish soap residue, and who knows what else left behind after cleaning haunted us. The thought literally made us sick to our stomach; we needed a new cutting board. The solution came in the form of Fab Slabs Antibacterial Cutting Boards.

Fab Slabs Antibacterial Cutting Boards

Fab Slabs Antibacterial Cutting Boards are the world’s most hygienic cutting boards. In the age of Covid19, this is a must-have in your kitchen.

Fab Slabs Antibacterial Cutting Boards and Grazing Platters

Tests conducted on the Fab Slabs boards showed that bacteria were unable to survive after a short time on the board. Further tests on Fab Slabs boards used domestically and commercially for the past 7-10 years showed ZERO bacteria growth. The cutting or chopping boards are milled, kiln-dried, and manufactured on the Sunshine Coast; about an hour North of Brisbane, by a family-owned and operated business.

Fab Slabs Antibacterial Grazing Platter

As you can see, these beautiful, richly toned cutting boards and grazing platters are unique in color and wood grain. They are made to last in the highest quality and durability. They are eco-friendly, will not blunt or dull your knives, and they can be personalized with laser engraving for special occasions. Our old cutting board is long gone and we feel much more relaxed knowing that our Fab Slabs Antibacterial Cutting Board will always be antibacterial no matter how many times we use and wash it. Next time you are in your kitchen, take a good look at your cutting board and ask yourself, how clean is it?

The Fab Slabs cutting boards and grazing platters are available in a variety of sizes and shapes to fit any decor and use. You can purchase individual chopping boards and grazing platters, or chopping board packs at these following retailers: Macy’s, Amazon, Lowe’s, Overstock.com, Amazon.com, and Wayfair.
