Bourbon Bars

All Bourbon is whisky, but not all whisky is Bourbon, it just wishes it were! If you are going to sip Bourbon in Kentucky, where it was born, here are some things you need to know:

-The label can't say "bourbon" unless it is distilled in the United States, and it can't say "Kentucky Bourbon" unless it is distilled in Kentucky.

-The only thing you can add to Bourbon is water: no added colors or flavors allowed.

-Bourbon can only be aged in new, charred American white oak barrels. That other stuff can age in re-used barrels.

-Bourbon must be at least 51% corn. The rest of the recipe might contain other grains, but the exact mash bill is top secret.

-There is no law that says Bourbon has to be made in Kentucky, but all the good ones are!

In 1964, the U.S. Congress declared Bourbon "America's Native Spirit" Here are some great spots to sample fine Bourbons in Lexington...
