BourbonWhiskey is one of the best all-American alcoholic. It’s a preparation made primarily from Corn, the golden grain of America. Have you ever tried it? You may have, because it’s used in a lot of Cocktails you might know.
Some say its name came from the French Bourbon dynasty, some say it comes from the places it was first distilled, in Kentucky. It has been distilled since the 18th century, as far as the 1820s. This distilling process was an influence from Irish descendants of America.
Because of the lack of documentation, no one actually knows for sure who created the Bourbonwhiskey. Some say a Baptist minister was the first one to distill and age the product in charred oaks casks. Some say the distiller Jacob Spears was the first one to label this product as “Bourbonwhiskey”. Other say its name came from the county of Bourbon, where it was created, or a Street in New Orleans called Bourbon Street.
And so on, the legends of its creation keep appearing. Most of them go back to the 18th century. One of the most accepted ones has place in the early 19th century.
Bourbon Whiskey is much regulated in the USA. So, Americans don’t play when they talk about alcohol.
Some of the regulating standards for labeling it are:
You might want to hold your horses while drinking this, cowboy, because it’s a really strong drink!
You can do anything with it because it’s really versatile. You can drink it neat, on the rocks, in Cocktails and more!
Some Cocktails are the Manhattan, the OldFashioned and the Whiskey Sour. You can even cook with it!
