Garrison Brothers bottles honey-infused Bourbon

by Melita Kiely

Texas-based Garrison Brothers Distillery has unveiled its latest limited edition experimental release – a honey-infused Bourbon.

Set to launch on 17 August, the Bourbon is bottled at 40% abv and has been infused with Texas-made Burleson’s wildflower honey to give a “smooth, light Bourbon with a subtle honey finish”. An initial run of 4,000 bottles of HoneyDew will be available to purchase exclusively from the distillery in Hye, Texas, at an RRP of US$69.99. Additional tasting notes for the expression include elderberry syrup, yeast, yellow flesh peaches and white chocolate. Distillery owner Dan Garrison said: “I’ve been drinking Bourbon since I was 13 years old. Our HoneyDew is the most magical nectar I have ever tasted. “It is light, delicate, gentle, floral and perfect for sipping on the porch in the summertime. “Donnis [Todd, master distiller,] knocked it out of the park. This Bourbon will absolutely be released commercially some day.”
