Bourbon is actually a type of American Whiskey; a barrel aged spirit distilled mostly from corn. It is unknown how this hard liquor officially received its name. Rumor has it that the name is ultimately derived from the French Bourbon dynasty but many believe Bourbon County, Kentucky or Bourbon St. in New Orleans, LA inspired this whiskey’s name. Although bourbon is sold throughout the United States, it is highly popular in the southern states; Kentucky being the most common. The well-known bourbons would be Jim Bean, Maker’s Mark, and Wild Turkey. Other highly sought after bourbon like Angel’s Envy and Eagle Rare can be difficult to find in local liquor stores. Four Roses and Basil Hayden’s are another two brands that are becoming extremely popular. This spirit should be enjoyed neat, on the rocks, or old fashioned with a dash or two of bitters and a sugar cube. The difference between whiskey and bourbon is that whiskey can be made from all over the world and fermented from grain mash – like rye, barley, wheat, and corn. Bourbon is derived from American whiskey and has to be produced in American with a 51% corn ratio. Although this spirit is made FROM whiskey, it has become its own spirit. All of our single bottles are 750ml unless stated otherwise in the description of the product. Please be sure to read it.
