History of Bourbon
Being a whiskey drinker, and since moving to Ireland, I have been asked a few times about the differences between a bourbon and a whiskey. So, I dug this old article up I wrote on the subject of bourbon. Bourbon is an American Whiskey that can trace its roots back to the early settlers of the country, who brought whiskey recipes with them and made it their own using products more easily grown locally. The state of Kentucky produces most of the bourbon sold in this country, although there are a couple of distilleries outside of Kentucky that brew bourbon.
