Set a medium pot over medium-low heat. Add Arborio rice, 1/4 cup sugar, milk, sea salt, and vanilla. Cook until rice is slightly under-cooked.

Strain raisins, reserving bourbon. Add raisins to rice, along with 1 tablespoon reserved bourbon. Transfer rice to an airtight container and refrigerate to chill.

Meanwhile, whip egg whites and 1 tablespoon sugar until soft peaks form. In a separate bowl, beat egg yolks and stir into chilled rice mixture, along with heavy cream. Gently stir in egg whites. Spoon into baking dish and bake 15 to 20 minutes.

Just before serving, spoon vanilla custard into bowls and top with rice pudding.
