Event Details

With the success and popularity of HoneyDew, it was only a matter of time until Master Distiller, Donnis Todd would add another layer of complexity and flavor to this expression. Ladies and gentlemen, introducing Lady Bird: Our Cask-Strength HoneyDew finished in XO Cognac barrels. Donnis Todd has done it again and you are not going to want to miss out on your bottle of Lady Bird.

These 4-5 year old bourbon barrels were selected for the natural honey notes they displayed before being aged an additional 8-9 months with honey-infused oak cubes. The liquid was then aged in exquisite French Cognac XO casks for an additional 3 years, resulting in a harmonious blend of unparalleled flavor and elegance. This double-finished masterpiece reflects the perfect balance between sweet honey notes and the rich complexity of cognac.

Bottled at a 114-proof, this is the perfect sipping whiskey with a finish that’s long enough to feel like a vacation. 

To try out the newest member of the Garrison Brothers bourbon family for yourself, join us bright and early at 8AM on May 6th for this year’s release of what is sure to be one of our most iconic expressions to date. Bottles will be $179.99 and will be limited to just one per person over the age of 21.  $5 from every Lady Bird bottle sold will be donated to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center to preserve the native plants of North America. If you’re unable to make it to the ranch, we will also be having a retail release in the weeks following this event, so keep an eye out at your favorite local retailer.

After you’ve snagged your bottle, feel free to stick around for live music from 9am-12pm by Matt Creaton and from 1-4pm from Colleen Michelle Miller

As with our other releases this year, we respectfully ask that no guests camp overnight in their cars and that no guests take to the skies to reach the distillery in helicopters. As much as we’d love to party with y’all through the night, having that many bourbon fans at once can be a bit too much for little old Hye-Albert Road to handle.

We’ll see y’all at the ranch at 8AM CDT on May 6th. Salud!
