This time of year you see a lot of “pumpkin spice” this and “apple cider” that. While both flavors scream fall, I would like to turn your attention to another option to warm your bones on those chilly fall nights, good ole American made Bourbon!
Whether you like yours neat or in a perfect Manhattan, a good bourbon drink will warm you from the inside out.
Did you know that Bourbon is the only spirit the United States can claim as its own? In 1964, Congress passed a resolution stating bourbon is unique to the United States and like no other whiskey in the world. This prevents other countries from ever declaring they produce a bourbon!
There are some strict rules regarding what bourbon must be. First, it must be
made and aged in the United States. Second, it must be made from a mash that is at least 51% corn(this is the distinction between whiskey and bourbon). Third, it may only be distilled
to a proof no higher than 159 (79.5 percent ABV).
