Lady Bird


Like all of our bourbons, Lady Bird begins its life as our distinguished Small Batch Bourbon Whiskey. Master Distiller Donnis Todd selects barrels of this nectar that already display notes of honey, and delicately infuses them with Burleson's Texas Wildflower Honey for an additional 8-9 months. The liquid then ages 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.

The creation of Lady Bird Bourbon is a testament to the dedication and passion of Nancy Garrison, co-founder of Garrison Brothers Distillery, and Master Distiller Donnis Todd.

Inspired by the legacy of its namesake, Lady Bird Johnson, this exceptional bourbon honors her commitment to the environment and native wildflowers. To craft this masterpiece, Donnis begins with our Texas Straight Bourbon Whiskey aged 4-5 years in new white American oak barrels, then infuses it with Burleson’s Wildflower Honey for 8-9 months, creating the exquisite Cask Strength HoneyDew. The honey-infused bourbon is further aged in exceptional French Cognac XO casks for an additional 3 years, resulting in a harmonious blend of unparalleled flavor and elegance.

In tribute to Lady Bird Johnson’s enduring impact, $5 from every bottle sold is donated to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, dedicated to preserving the native plants of North America and fostering an appreciation for nature’s awe-inspiring beauty. Enjoy the fruits of Nancy and Donnis’ hard work by sipping and savoring the exquisite taste of Lady Bird Bourbon.


Our Lady Bird Bourbon greets you with the inviting aroma of freshly cut grass and sweet honey accompanied by subtle notes of black cocoa waffle cone and honey wafers, creating a warm and enticing experience. As you take your first sip, true decadence unfolds on the palate: the rich taste of warm buckwheat pancakes, dark chocolate-covered cherries and malted milk balls. The complex profile also includes the indulgent essence of cognac cherries, dried figs and plums, offering a luxuriously unique tasting experience. The finish is long and satisfying; lingering on the tongue, leaving a lasting impression of the succulence derived from the harmonious marriage of honey and cognac flavors.

"Lady Bird Bourbon represents our finest creation to date, a truly elegant spirit that pays tribute to the natural beauty of Texas and the legacy of Lady Bird Johnson. Sip it slowly, and let the harmony of honey and cognac transport you."
