Modern Man, Modern Drink: With Modern Man Derrick Miles

Modern Luxury | October 26, 2020 |

Presented by Garrison Brothers

Much like the uniqueness of a bourbon from Texas Hill Country, yes, you read that right: a bourbon from Texas; our Modern Men are a unique mix of entrepreneurs and community members who add the flavor to our diverse community. Each week we will highlight one of our Modern Men alongside the beauty and ingenuity of Garrison Brothers.

From a young age, Derrick Miles has always wanted to help those around him. He channeled that passion into a career in the healthcare industry, working to bring better care to those around him. His passion for life extends beyond work and into the community he calls home: Dallas. We sat down with him to discuss what it takes to be a Modern Man and the beauty of a good drink.

The perfect recipe for any Modern Man:

Garrison Brothers Hot Toddy
